2011: Taiwan for UN
Presbyterian Church in Taiwan (PCT) joins TAUNA in New York in voicing Taiwanese people's plea for UN membership
Reported by Sam Lee, Written by Lydia Ma
Taiwan's desire to be a member of the United Nations was conveyed on various occasions in the US recently when PCT representatives joined Taiwan United Nations Alliance (TAUNA) officers on a campaign to promote this issue and raise awareness.
The delegation visited American Institute in Taiwan Washington Headquarters, World Council of Churches Liaison Office, and other organizations and held a promotional event at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza. This tour was significant in presenting PCT's perspective to the US on this issue because other Taiwanese officials are also visiting the U.S. this month to garner support for both presidential candidates ahead of next year's elections.
