BACKING THE BID The representatives co-sponsoring the resolution include some of Taiwan's biggest supporters such as Scott Garrett, Tom Tancredo and Steve Chabot


"We appreciate the support of the US lawmakers for Taiwan to seek UN membership using the name `Taiwan' and we hope that the [Bush] administration will hear their voices," acting spokeswoman Phoebe Yeh said. "The UN membership bid meets the expectations of all Taiwanese people and this will not change the `status quo.' We hope to gain more support from the international community despite China's suppression."
