– We are disappointed, upset and angry, says the country’s foreign minister to Aftenposten.

Ministerial Councilor Bjørn-Inge Larsen chaired one of the committees during the annual summit of the World Health Assembly. He slammed everyone who wanted to talk about Taiwan. Screenshot from who.int

Bjørn-Inge Larsen was mild, but strict in his voice when he intervened at the global health summit last week:

– I suggest we stop … that we stop this video. Thanks. This is in accordance with the regulations.

And suddenly the post from the Pacific nation Palau was replaced by a picture of a dressed Larsen, who was sitting in front of a gray curtain and a bouquet of flowers.

– I would encourage Palau to rather submit their contribution in writing, the Norwegian health summit concluded.

Larsen chaired parts of the annual summit of the World Health Assembly (WHA), which is the governing body of the World Health Organization (WHO). Due to the pandemic, the meeting was held on the internet, with the participants on their respective screens in their respective countries.

Each time it was because they brought up a very hot topic:
