Hot Issues

The United Nations General Assembly Resolution 2758

The United Nations General Assembly Resolution 2758  (also known as the Resolution on Admitting Peking) was passed in response to the  United Nations General Assembly Resolution 1668  that required any change in  China's representation in the UN be determined by a two-thirds vote referring to Article 18 of the UN Charter. The resolution, passed on 25 October 1971, recognized the People's Republic of China as "the only legitimate representative of China to the United Nations" and removed "the representatives of Chiang Kai-shek" (referring to the  Republic of China, whose central government had  relocated to Taiwan from the mainland) from the United Nations.

Speaking at a seminar held by the German Marshall Fund, on May 1, 2024, , US Deputy Assistant Secretary for China and Taiwan Mark Lambert called for support for Taiwan’s meaningful participation in the international community at a time when China is increasingly misusing Resolution 2758.  “Beijing mischaracterizes the resolution by falsely conflating it with China’s ‘one China’ principle, and wrongly asserts that it reflects an international consensus for its ‘one China’ principle,” is one of the main points emphasized by Lambert.

The following is the full text of resolution

2758 (XXVI). Restoration of the lawful rights of the People's Republic of China in the United Nations

The General Assembly,

Recalling the principies of the Charter of the United Nations,
