Ministry to promote UN bid in the US

The government is to hold a series of events on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York next month while calling on the global body to stop the misinterpretation of Resolution 2758 and allow Taiwan’s meaningful participation in its system, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said yesterday.

Taiwan is stepping up its efforts to promote the nation’s bid to join the UN leading up to the 78th session of the General Assembly on Tuesday next week and the General Debate from Sept. 19 to Sept. 26.

Due to a misinterpretation of UN Resolution 2758 Taiwan has been inappropriately excluded from the UN, which should be rectified, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Tien Chung-kwang (田中光) said yesterday.


Eradicating scams and fake ads on social media

The Thai Ministry of Digital Economy and Society has asked Facebook to remove crypto scams and ad fraud on its platform. If Facebook fails to comply, the Thai government said it would seek a court-approved shutdown of the social media platform.

Many online ads are shown to us because the information is suited to our needs. However, on some social media platforms, more often than not, the ads are neither randomly displayed nor coincidentally cater to our needs. They are shown to us due to artificial intelligence algorithms. Ad fraud is an example of this. Algorithms must be employed to fight against scams.


Taiwan in UN promotes peace: Wu

Minister of Foreign Affairs Joseph Wu (吳釗燮) has called for Taiwan’s inclusion in the UN framework to help ensure peace in the region, as the world body is slated to begin its 78th session of the general assembly on Tuesday next week.

“Together we are stronger. It is time to act on this fundamental principle, including Taiwan,” Wu wrote in an op-ed published on Saturday on the Italian news site Le Formiche.

The UN Charter, which states that international disputes should be settled peacefully, has helped maintain the rules-based international order since the end of the Cold War, he said.


Lai’s steady hand of leadership

On his way to Paraguay, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Vice President William Lai (賴清德) stopped over in the US. After this seven-day trip, Lai’s strategy of playing safe has continued to influence the US, China and Taiwan.

The “play-safe” strategy was created together by the US and Taiwan. Its purpose was to keep China in check. Lai’s strategy has demonstrated how both countries have been well-coordinated, and that Taiwan has been keeping this promise with self-restraint. Through Lai’s trip, the US and Taiwan have established a collaboration through which mutual trust can be reinforced.

Taiwan Association for the Care of the Victims of Political Persecution During the Martial Law Period secretary-general Tsai Kuan-yu (蔡寬裕) has called on the government to declassify important articles and reveal the methods that the military police used to extract confessions.

Tsai’s remarks came in the wake of a recent controversy caused by a military police visit to a civilian’s home over an alleged online sale of classified government documents.
