Taiwan controversy

In a recent controversy regarding Taiwan’s description, UN Women’s site described the region as a ‘Province of China’. However, this was obviously opposed by netizens as well as MOFA. After this, the website has removed this description of Taiwan from its website.

Now, this was done when UN Women’s Twitter and Facebook account posted an image showing countries who have legalized ‘same-sex marriage’. In this list, Taiwan was also listed but as a ‘Province of China’ which received heavy backlash. After the protests, the images were deleted from both the accounts.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that “through the efforts of its office in New York, and as a result of the numerous protests, the UN Women had removed the image from its social media accounts” which was reported by Central News Agency.

MOFA added that “it would continue to monitor the online presence of UN bodies to see how they dealt with the issue further down the road.” MOFA said “The UN should research a method to include Taiwan and its 23 million inhabitants in order to achieve its universal value of tolerance”

The interesting part about this image’s removal is that instead of removing the controversial text, the entire image was deleted. Also, a new image has not been posted on the accounts to replace the original image.
