Ex-Taiwan President Lee to visit Japan next month
(Kyodo) _ Former Taiwan President Lee Teng-hui is set to make a six-day trip to Japan in mid-September, his office said Saturday.
The trip scheduled between Sept. 12 and 17 will focus purely on sightseeing and cultural exchanges, the office said in a press release, adding further details have yet to be set.
But the visit is highly likely to trigger criticism again from China, which sees Taiwan as a breakaway province that should be reunited with it, by force if necessary.kyodo
