    Japan vice PM hits out at WHO for excluding Taiwan (2020/03/27)

    Pro-Taiwan Japanese politician Aso Taro blasted the World Health Organization for bowing to China and excluding Taiwan. Speaking to Japanese lawmakers, the deputy prime minister said the WHO should change its name to the "CHO," or China Health Organization. He said being excluded from the global health body, Taiwan was driven to become a world leader in combating the coronavirus.

    The coronavirus pandemic has led to the postponement of the 2020 Olympics in Japan. Speaking in Japan’s parliament, the country’s deputy prime minister leveled fresh criticism against China.

    Although the details are murky, the WHO’s previous director-general was a Chinese national and at the time, there were complaints all around. And now, at last, the petition has gathered 300,000 signatures – or rather, 500,000 signatures. People think the World Health Organization should change its name. It shouldn’t be called the WHO. It should be renamed the CHO. This appeal is truly resonating with the people.

    The Japan official took issue with former WHO Director-General Margaret Chan, charging her with inadequate accountability. He said the current director-general was no better for giving in to China’s spin about the coronavirus.

    Early on, if the WHO had not insisted to the world that China had no pneumonia epidemic, then everybody would have taken precautions. The WHO, which is a global organization, does not even include Taiwan. And then precisely because Taiwan is not a member of the WHO, it becomes a world leader in fighting the epidemic. Then after that statement is made, the CCP jumps out to correct it. It says, “Taiwan is a region, not a country.”

    Aso had once said that Taiwan, “in various ways, is a country that shares common values with Japan." He’s regarded as a member of the pro-Taiwan camp in Japanese politics. Amid the pandemic, he’s turned to China with a critical eye, questioning its claim that the virus was contained and insisting on using the term “Wuhan virus.”
