Lien Chan Pays Respects to Lee Teng-hui|連戰赴台北賓館追思 肯定李登輝對台貢獻
Former Vice President Lien Chan paid his respects to late president Lee Teng-hui and praised Lee's contributions to Taiwan. The discussion of where Lee would be buried, however, has drawn some opposition.
Former Vice President Lien Chan, friend-turned-foe of former President Lee Teng-hui, paid his respects to Lee with a Kuomintang contingent on the 5th. Lien praised Lee's contributions to Taiwan.
(Lee Teng-hui contributed a great deal to freedom and democracy in Taiwan as well as social and economic development. He will continue to live on in our hearts.
Various government officials including the ministers of labor and science and technology also paid their respects on the 5th along with 93-year-old independence activist Koo Kwang-min. Koo, a former presidential advisor, said Lee was like a brother to him and never wavered in his support of Taiwan independence.
We went to the same school and developed a very, very close compatriot relationship. Taiwan's future is now in the hands of young generation. Our time is past.
A contingent of lawmakers led by Deputy Legislative Speaker Su Chi-chang also paid their respects. The Southern California Branch of the Veterans Association of the ROC has issued a statement opposing Lee's interment in the "special honors" area of Wuzhi Mountain Military Cemetery. The group says Lee was a controversial figure and should not be laid to rest alongside the ROC's revolutionary military heroes.
The Presidential Office says it will discuss the burial arrangements with Lee's family.
