China’s Foreign Minister Qin Gang has been absent from public view for a month. He was last seen on June 25 when he met officials from Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Russia.
His disappearance was first noticed when he missed the Asean annual foreign ministers’ meeting in Indonesia earlier this month. China’s Foreign Ministry cited “health reasons” for Mr Qin missing the Asean summit, and said it had no further information on his whereabouts.
There is intense speculation about the fate of China’s main envoy, including a rumour of his extramarital affair with a TV presenter.
What has happened to Qin Gang? How will his disappearance affect China’s domestic politics and international relations?
In this episode of Global Heartbeat podcast, Lianhe Zaobao’s Beijing journalist Yu Zeyuan shares his insights with host Han Yong Hong.
(After the recording of this episode, China's top legislature voted to remove Qin Gang as foreign minister at an urgent meeting and reappointed his predecessor Wang Yi to the position.)
