UN rejected fifteenth Taiwan bid for membership
Clay Flaherty at 12:00 AM ET

On September 19, 2007, the UN rejected Taiwain's 15th bid for UN membership when UN committee balked at placing the issue on the General Assembly's agenda. Taiwan, which officially refers to itself as the Republic of China (ROC), was kicked out of the UN in 1971 by General Assembly Resolution 2758 [PDF] and replaced by the People's Republic of China (PRC). In March 2008, two national Taiwanese referendums on whether to proceed with the continued bids for UN membership failed to pass the electorate.
