                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
  Relating to the Republic of China on Taiwan's participation in the 
                            United Nations.

Whereas China has been a divided nation since 1949, and the Government of the 
        Republic of China on Taiwan (ROC) and the People's Republic of China on 
        the Chinese mainland have since exercised exclusive jurisdiction over 
        separate parts of China;
Whereas United Nations General Assembly Resolution 2758 (1971) does not 
        constitute a complete solution to the issue of China's seat in the 
        United Nations which resulted from the division of China;
Whereas the Government of the ROC acknowledges that two equal and distinct 
        political entities exist within the divided China;
Whereas the Republic of China on Taiwan is currently the fourteenth largest 
        trading nation in the world; its gross national product is the world's 
        twentieth largest; its annual per capita income exceeds US$10,000; its 
        foreign exchange reserves exceed US$80,000,000,000; and it has become 
        the world's seventh largest outbound investor;
Whereas the twenty-one million people on Taiwan enjoy a democratic form of 
        government, and the ROC Government's policies conform to those of other 
        democratic nations;
Whereas the ROC has joined other nations in responding to international 
        disasters and crises; has undertaken programs of assistance for less-
        developed nations; and has in other ways accepted regional and global 
        responsibilities;
Whereas the ROC has joined several important multilateral organizations in 
        recent years, including Asia/Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and the 
        Asian Development Bank, and its admission into these organizations has 
        been supported by the United States;
Whereas a consensus has emerged in the Republic of China on Taiwan to 
        participate in the United Nations, and the Government of the ROC has 
        launched a campaign to pursue a seat in the United Nations without 
        prejudice to the current position of the People's Republic of China in 
        the United Nations; and
Whereas ROC membership in the United Nations is in conformity with the United 
        Nations principle of universality and will contribute to the peace and 
        stability of the Pacific region, and therefore to the interests of the 
        United States: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That it is the sense of the Congress that the Republic of China on 
Taiwan deserves full participation, including a seat, in the United 
Nations.
