New Year Wishes

Former president Lee Teng-hui wishes supporters a happy Lunar New Year at a party held by the Lee Teng-hui Academy in Taipei yesterday morning, which attracted more than 80 supporters. Referring to French President Jacques Chirac's recent condemnation of Taiwan's referendum plans, Lee said, ``Chirac cannot interfere with Taiwan's internal issues.'' He said that Taiwan's self-awareness had increased after the referendum plan was proposed, and that it was important to continue to push for rectifying the name of Taiwan.Jan 31, 2004
