Lee Teng-hui,

76, president of Taiwan, nearly set off an international crisis in July when he announced that he considers Taiwan a state that would bargain with China only on a “state-to-state” basis. Beijing and Taipei hammered out an agreement in 1993 that said each country had its own government but each was part of “one China.”
