US official to help WTO bid

STAFF WRITER

US Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson has promised to help Taiwan take its case for observer status in the World Health Organization (WHO) to the international stage, said Taiwan's Minister of Health Lee Ming-liang (李明亮) Wednesday in Washington, DC. Lee, who arrived in Washington on Sunday to seek support for Taiwan's bid to join the WHO as an observer, said Thompson told him Monday that he will beat the drum for Taiwan's WHO admission more aggressively this year.
