insists on
human
41ghts talk
WASHINGTON (AP) - Chinese
President Jiang Zemin will get a full
picture of how Americans feel about
China's human rights record, both from
protest demonstrations outside and
tough talk inside the White House,
k Madeleine Albright said yesterday.
The secretary of state also made clear
at while human rights is just one
aspect of increasingly important U.S.-
China ties, "We will never have a com-
pletely normal relationship with them
until they have a better human rights
policy."
Jiang, who arrived yesterday in
M Honolulu to begin the first U.S. visit by
a Chinese leader in a dozen years, is
expected to face protest rallies at each
his stops in Williamsburg,
ashington, Philadelphia, New York,
Boston and Los Angeles.
Christian groups were to kick off
the demonstrations yesterday with a
prayer vigil across from the White
House to protest religious persecution
in China and that country's abortion
policies.
Speaking of the historic locales Jiang
is visiting in the United States, Albright
said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that he
* ill not have a totally fuzzy time at
these places. I think that it is important
for him, actually, to see where our liber-
ty came from.'

Columbian elections held
despite rebel intimidation

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) - Amid
heavy security, Colombians voted for
state and local offices yesterday in elec-
tions marred by a rebel sabotage cam-
paign that has killed dozens of candi-
dates and scared thousands more into
withdrawing.
Obeying leftist guerrilla orders to
boycott the ballot and stay off high-
ways, tens of thousands of Colombians
in the countryside outside state control
were expected to stay away rather than
risk rebel retribution.
More than 200,000 police and soldiers

guarded voting stations, but several skir-
mishes were reported, and authorities
said 10 election otficials were kidnapped
by rebels in one northern town.
Nationwide, police said road traffic
was down 80 percent - an indication
people were heeding the rebel "armed
strike" advertised in leaflets and by
word-of-mouth. Some roads were dyna-
mited, apparently by rebels.
In their stiffest challenge to the gov-
ernment in more than 30 years of fight-
ing, leftist guerrillas have badly embar-
rassed President Ernesto Samper's

scandal-plagued administration.
More than 100 candidates and elect-
ed officials have been murdered this
year, most by guerrillas but some by
the rebels' paramilitary foes, and more
than 2,000 candidates withdrew under
death threat, dozens after being kid-
napped.
In Cartagena del Chaira, a small river
town in the rebel-dominated southern
state of Caqueta, where 9,200 people
are registered voters, all businesses
were shuttered and the streets were full
of soldiers.

States, President Jiang Zemin is going
to meet with protesters. He's going to
see and hear American voices on this. I
can't think of anything better than that,"
Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) said on
CNN's "Late Edition."
Jiang, who rose to power in the
Chinese Communist Party hierarchy in
the wake of the 1989 Tiananmen crack-
down, meets Clinton Wednesday for
talks expected to cover trade, weapons
proliferation, Taiwan, drug trafficking
and the environment as well as human
rights.
"The important part here for us is to
engage with China but not endorse
everything that they're doing," Albright
said.
She said "substantial progress" has

been made toward an agreement where
China would pledge not to give nuclear
assistance to Iran, Pakistan and other
countries. An agreement would include
the lifting by the Clinton administration
of restrictions on the sale to China of
U.S. nuclear reactors.
The secretary said some good news
also has come on human rights, with
the recent release from custody of a
Roman Catholic Chinese bishop
imprisoned for preaching outside the
government-sanctioned church.
Sen. Orrin Hatch, a conservative
Republican from Utah who recently
visited China, praised the administra-
tion's position on human rights, pro-
nouncing it "the best way to work with
China."
