China seat, intergovernmental organizations, veto power, military alliance, International Atomic Energy Agency

In 1971 the People’s Republic of China obtained the China seat in the United Nations (UN), while the government on Taiwan, which had formerly occupied the seat, was expelled from the organization. China has a permanent seat, which includes veto power, on the UN Security Council, and the country participates in the full range of UN agencies, including the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (World Bank) and the International Monetary fund (IMF). China is also a member of most intergovernmental organizations in specialized fields, such as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). China does not belong to any military alliance or regional security organization, although it participates in the informal Asian Regional Forum (ARF), a security dialogue.
