A local journalist sent this around. They were applying to attend the ICAO. As another discussant observed, the newspaper this reporter represents is not affiliated with a Taiwanese new agency and thus there are no grounds whatsoever for rejection.
With respect to your request for accreditation to attend the 38th Session of the ICAO Assembly, ICAO continues to conduct itself in accordance with the United Nations’ one-China policy and our unit is unfortunately not permitted to accredit media directly affiliated to Taiwanese news agencies while this policy remains in place.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause.
