In May 1995, the ARATS and the SEF conducted the first round of preparatory talks in Taipei in preparation for the second round of Wang–Koo talks, which they decided would be held in Beijing on 20 July 1995. While advancing cross-Straits relations, the Lee Teng-hui administration, however, still actively conducted activities to promote the expansion of Taiwan’s international space, undermining the basis of cross-Straits exchanges.
