Taiwan’s Ex-President Lee Withdraws Visa Application to Visit Japan - 2002-11-13


Former Taiwan President Lee Teng-hui has withdrawn his application for a Japanese visa, the Foreign Ministry said Tuesday, just a day after China warned Tokyo to handle the request “appropriately.” China has asked foreign governments not to grant Lee visas, claiming the retired leader advocates Taiwanese separatism. Lee was scheduled to give a speech at Tokyo’s Keio University later this month.
