Former president Lee Teng-hui (李登輝) has postponed his trip to Japan because of health concerns, the Japan Broadcasting Corp (NHK) reported yesterday. The NHK report did not elaborate on Lee's health concerns or the source of the information. Lee's office in Taipei, which announced last Saturday that the former president would be traveling to Japan between Sept. 12 and Sept. 17, had no comment on the NHK report. Lee visited Okayama Prefecture in April 2001 to receive medical treatment for heart disease and made a second trip in December 2004 and January last year to several Japanese cities, including Nagoya and Kyoto. Lee had originally planned to visit Japan again in May this year, but ended up canceling the trip after catching a mild case of tuberculosis.
