China has appointed its envoy to the US, Chin Gang, as the new foreign minister. He will replace Wang Yi. Current Foreign Minister Wang Yi (69) has been promoted to the Political Bureau of the ruling Communist Party and has become the country’s top diplomat. The Bureau is the highest body of the Party in policy matters. It is not yet clear when the 56-year-old Chin will take up the post.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson and Assistant Foreign Minister Hua Chunying tweeted, “Congratulations to Chin Gang on being appointed as the new Foreign Minister of China! A wonderful new chapter in China’s diplomacy awaits.”
The announcement comes as a surprise as a new administration headed by a new prime minister will take over during the annual session of Parliament starting March 5 next year. All top officials and ministers, except President Xi Jinping, will be replaced during the parliament session.
