Sen. Baker in Peking for talks on Taiwan

Hoping to ease United States-Chinese tension over the Taiwan issue, Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker arrived in Peking Sunday with a message from President Reagan to Chinese leaders.

Mr. Baker's arrival coincided with a visit to Taiwan by Sen. Barry Goldwater (R) of Arizona, who said he brought reassurances from President Reagan to Nationalist Chinese President Chiang Ching-kuo that there was no indication in the US that arms sales to Taiwan would be stopped.

Mr. Baker's visit comes three weeks after Vice-President George Bush left China without reaching a breakthrough in the Taiwan dispute.
