By Hadi Fornaji.
Tripoli, 6 August 2013:
China has moved its top diplomat in South Sudan to take over as its new ambassador in Libya.
Li Zhiguo will replace Wang Wangsheng, who has headed China’s diplomatic mission in Tripoli since 2008.
Li originally served as Beijing’s chargé d’affaires in the-then southern Sudan, being promoted to ambassador when South Sudan was established as a separate state in 2011.
One of the main tasks tht Li will inherit here from his predecessor will be the negotiations over the resumption of infrastructure contracts worth billions . . .
