Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Taiwan has requested to attend the U.N. General Assembly this year. This bears extra weight to world leaders: Taiwan is one of the few nations successfully dealing with the current health crisis, while the Chinese regime has been criticized by many countries for covering up information in the early stages of the pandemic.
Under political pressure from China, the international organization is likely to exclude Taiwan again from attending the General Assembly, which will be held from Sept. 15 to 30 in New York, United States.
The Chinese regime considers Taiwan part of its territory, despite the fact that the island operates as a de-facto state, with its own democratically-elected government, military, and currency.
Beijing has continually pressured international organizations, such as the United Nations, to accept China’s sovereignty claims.
Beijing has cultivated relationships with overseas Chinese-language media via major global conferences headlined by Communist Party leaders. Experts say it is part of CCP’s broader united front work. The revelations come after four Chinese nationals and journalists were denied re-entry into Australia following allegations they engaged in espionage or foreign interference.
Since 2013, 92 Chinese-language media outlets from Australia have taken part in the Global Chinese Language Media Forum.
The conference is backed by major Chinese Communist Party (CCP) organs, including the Information Office of the State Council, Beijing’s internet censorship arm; China News Service, the second-largest state-run media in the country; and the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office—which has been accused of influence activities.
The CCP has stepped up its efforts to persecute Falun Gong while facing pandemic, floods, economic downturn, food crises, and a total stalemate in international relations. Some CCP’s internal documents that have been exposed a few days ago show that the persecution of Falun Gong has been integrated into CCP’s various political activities, from the assessment of the leadership team, “anti-pornography”, “safety construction”, and “village revitalization”. Even in the strategies of pandemic prevention and control, there are contents related to suppressing Falun Gong.
According to a confidential document issued by the Organization Department of the Fuyang Municipal Party Committee of Anhui Province, the degree of suppressing Falun Gong has been included as the assessment indicators and scoring standards to assess the leadership and the party building of the municipalities and provincial cities in Anhui Province.
Mainland human rights lawyers Xie Yanyi and Xie Yang pointed out in an open letter to the European Union: “Today, the biggest human rights issue is in China, and China’s biggest human rights issue is the issue of Falun Gong.” They said, “with Falun Gong treated in injustice, the country is in danger!”
