Stanley Roth to visit Taiwan this month


Stanley Roth, a former US assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs under the Clinton administration will come to Taiwan mid-month to attend a seminar, a local newspaper reported yesterday.

Roth will be the first Clinton administration official to visit Taiwan since the transition of the US presidency on Jan. 20.

Roth will attend a seminar on issues related to the Asia-Pacific political and economic development co-sponsored by the US think tank Intelibridge, and the China Development Industrial Bank.

During his three-day visit, Roth is also expected to meet with local scholars and officials in charge of diplomatic and national security affairs.

Intelibridge, headed by former White House National Security Advisor Tony Lake, focuses on collecting and analyzing the latest global political and economic information and often sponsors seminars in various countries around the world.

Meanwhile, several noted US military and security affairs experts will also visit Taiwan later this month to exchange views with their local counterparts on regional development and security issues.

They will also discuss the anticipated direction of the Bush administration's diplomatic and strategic policies.
