China: A Report From the Top
Anthony Lake is the National Security Adviser to President Bill Clinton.
In July, he sat down at the White House with Los Angeles Times correspondents
Jim Mann and Doyle McManus to review his recent rip to Beijing where he
met with Chinese President Ziang Jemin and Premier Li Peng, among others.
President Jemin will be invited for a state visit to Washington next year
if Clinton wins reelection. This is an edited excerpt of that interview.
