TAIPEI (AFP) - Former Taiwanese president Lee Teng-hui, branded by China as a "splittist", will visit Japan next month after his planned trip last year was called off for health reasons, his office said Monday.

The 91-year-old, who is scheduled to depart on Sept 19, will visit Osaka and Tokyo and make speeches there.

The seven-day trip will also take Mr Lee to Hokkaido.

The Japan-educated Mr Lee was twice hospitalised last year, causing doctors to advise him against long-distance trips.
