Taiwan had been taking part in the annual World Health Assembly, the decision-making body of the WHO, as an observer since 2009.

"Whatever the USA side says or does will never change the objective fact that there is only one China in the world and the Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan regions are all inalienable parts of China's territory", Geng said on Monday, adding that "China will continue to handle its relations with other countries in accordance with the one-China principle".

It said the exclusion of Taiwan from the WHA event for a second consecutive year showed Beijing's lack of willingness to improve relations.

It would facilitate Taiwan's inclusion "if and when cross-strait understanding on WHA participation is restored", it told Agence France-Presse in a statement. He said the refusal of to accept the One China principle undermines the political foundation for Taiwan to attend the World Health Assembly.

Taiwan's foreign ministry said yesterday it "regretted" that it had not been invited to the WHA.

It stressed that enjoying good health is the universal right of every human being, without distinction of political belief or other factors.

"We are concerned that the participation of Taiwan in global health activities of WHO might be extremely limited".

"The Democratic Progressive Party authorities have refused to recognize the "1992 consensus" on the one-China principle", An Fengshan, spokesman of the Taiwan Affairs Office under the State Council, was quoted by the Central News Agency as saying at a press conference in Beijing.

"Because the DPP refuses to recognise the".

On April 25, the Chinese Civil Aviation Administration sent a letter to 36 foreign air carriers, including a number of American carriers.

This is Orwellian nonsense and part of a growing trend by the Chinese Communist Party to impose its political views on American citizens and private companies.

Among other efforts, the government will continue to encourage Taiwan businesses to diversify their export and investment outlets from China to countries targeted in its New Southbound Policy, the Middle East and Africa, while also inspiring them to return to Taiwan for investment and inviting foreign procurement groups to visit the country.
