    A HOUSE RESOLUTION to urge the Congress of the United States to give due consideration to the readiness of the Republic of China on Taiwan for membership in the United Nation.

     Whereas, The Republic of China on Taiwan (“Taiwan”) has established a democratic, multiparty political system, and its show of diplomacy aimed at national unification demonstrates its progressive spirit as a government and a people. Inclusion of Taiwan in the United Nations would only further the universality of this essential global forum;

    Whereas, Already having provided many developing nations with financial assistance, as well as overseas aid, training, and disaster relief, Taiwan has amply illustrated its concern for the welfare of the world; and

    Whereas, The government of Taiwan has accepted the obligations contained in the United Nations Charter and agrees to promote international peace and security. The fundamental

right of the 21,000,000 people who comprise Taiwan to be partners in the community of nations should no longer be denied:

    Be it resolved by the House by the House of Representatives
            of the General Assembly of the State of Indiana:

    SECTION 1. That the Indiana House of Representatives supports the membership of the Republic of China on Taiwan in the United Nations and urges due consideration by the Congress of the United States.
    SECTION 2. That the Principal Clerk of the House of Representatives transmit a copy of this Resolution to the President and Secretary of the United States Senate, the Speaker and Clerk of the United States House of Representatives, Indiana's Senators and Representatives in Congress, and the United Nations General Assembly.
