a total of 87 co-sponsors, the U.S. House of Representatives
unanimously passed HCR390 on October 3, 2000 concluding
that "it is the sense of the Congress that— (1)
Taiwan and its 23,000,000 people deserve appropriate meaningful
participation in the United Nations and other international
organizations such as the World Health Organization; and
(2) the United States should fulfill the commitment it made
in the 1994 Taiwan Policy Review to more actively support
Taiwan’s participation in appropriate international organizations."
resolution was introduced on July 27 by a bi-partisan group
of over 40 Members of the House of Representatives.
October 4, the resolution was referred to the Senate and
is now held on Senator Lott’s desk.
Taiwanese Americans believe that passing this resolution
sends a strong message to the international community that
the 23 million people of Taiwan are eager to fully join
the family of nations. We feel that Taiwan deserves and
should ultimately have full U.N. membership as an independent
country. But seeing this resolution passed, is, nonetheless,
a big leap forward
