By Kyodo News 12 August 2020
TAIPEI—US Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar on Tuesday sharply criticized China for excluding Taiwan from the World Health Organization, saying the self-ruled island has a lot to offer on important issues like health.
As the highest-level US cabinet official to visit since Washington switched diplomatic recognition to China in 1979, Azar told reporters before meeting Taiwan Foreign Minister Joseph Wu at a Taipei hotel that he is here to bring greetings from US President Donald Trump and to recognize Taiwan’s health leadership.
