On June 19, CPJ wrote to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, calling on him to review a U.N. policy that refuses accreditation to journalists from states not recognized by the General Assembly. Journalists from Taiwan, who are most affected by the policy, were excluded from covering the World Health Organization annual assembly on May 14. On June 24, when asked at a U.N. press briefing about CPJ's letter, Michele Montas, a U.N. spokeswoman, said the policy reflected the wishes of the General Assembly.
