LETTER : Taipei appeals for peace

Sir: Regarding your leading article, "Resisting the roar of the dragon" (12 March), it is absolutely untrue that President Lee Teng-hui is committed to independence which you mentioned in your article. President Lee Teng-hui has reiterated his stance against independence and appealed for peaceful solutions many times on different occasions.
