World Health Organization says has 'no mandate' to invite Taiwan to assembly meeting

"We hope that certain people in New Zealand will stop spreading rumours and creating trouble and work to enhance instead of undermining bilateral mutual trust and cooperation", Lihan said. He also called on all nations, including those in Europe, to back Taiwan's participation as an observer at the assembly and in other UN venues.

Peters said New Zealand supported Taiwan taking part in the World Health Assembly meeting next week as an observer is because of its "tremendous success against Covid-19".

The position on Taiwan isn't new for New Zealand.

"On the Taiwan region's participation in World Health Organization activities, China's position is clear and consistent".

"Taiwan has been a standout society - 435 cases and only four deaths - and they're not going into relapse like China and South Korea are".

China views Taiwan as a breakaway province, and while Canada does not recognize its sovereignty, the two do have trade and cultural relations.

"We've always taken a one-China policy", she said.

Peters said he did not think the issue would harm diplomatic ties with China, which is New Zealand's biggest trading partner.

China berated New Zealand on Monday for its support for Taiwan's participation at the World Health Organization, saying the country should "stop making wrong statements" on the issue to avoid damaging bilateral ties.

Lihan appeared to contradict a claim from Peters that discussions with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi had given him confidence there would be no pushback. "It's based on the ability in this friendship to nevertheless disagree".

Peters, at a press conference about funding the horse racing industry on Tuesday, said New Zealand had a responsibility "to our neighbours and, dare I say it, to humanity".

Taiwan authorities' political manipulation of the COVID-19 pandemic is totally futile, said the spokesperson.

"It's really impossible to understand why in the interests of helping the global community that's already lost a quarter of a million people and will lose millions, and the greatest crisis to any economy in 100 years".

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said today New Zealand maintained its recognition of the one-China policy, and that the call for Taiwan to re-join the World Health Organization was to learn from their pandemic response.

He also said he didn't regret telling Chinese Ambassador Wu Xi last week she should "listen to [her] master".

"When I get assurances from the highest level in China, I believe them", Peters said.

"It's about being able to gather that knowledge but it fundamentally does not change our policy with regards to one-China".

Mfat, in the statement to Stuff, referred to Taiwan as a "community", not a country.
