March 30, 2015
The South Korean government appointed Kim Jang-soo as the next South Korean ambassador to China on March 27, just one day after Korea announced its decision to join the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). Nominated by President Park on February 15, the Chinese government granted Ambassador Kim’s appointment a number of weeks after his nomination. Kim was among fourteen new envoys in a personnel reshuffle of ambassadors.
