President Clinton has agreed to meet with Jiang Zemin, the president of China, at the United Nations on October 24. The Chinese wanted the meeting to take place in Washington. Diplomatic Correspondent Dean Fischer reports: "Clinton wants to meet outside of Washington because he doesn't feel the relationship with China has improved enough to warrant a state visit." The terms of the New York meeting, which the U.S. is calling a working visit rather than a summit, are also in dispute. China said the United States had agreed to severe restrictions on visits by Taiwan's leaders that bar them from making political speeches. But the White House and State Department denied placing these restrictions on Taiwanese leadership.
