Summary

To prohibit all United States assessed and voluntary contributions to the United Nations until such time as the membership in the United Nations of the People's Republic of China is terminated and the Republic of China (Taiwan) is afforded full rights, privileges, and responsibilities as a Member State in the United Nations, and for other purposes. This bill directs the United States to withhold all contributions to the United Nations (U.N.) until (1) China's U.N. membership is terminated, and (2) Taiwan is granted full membership. (China considers Taiwan a part of China, and, as a result, the U.N. does not consider Taiwan a member state.) The President shall direct the U.S. representative to the U.N. to encourage other member states to take similar action.
