After keeping post vacant for 18 months, Xi appoints Xu Feihong as China’s new envoy to India

While there is no official announcement in Beijing yet, the Chinese Foreign Ministry has confirmed to news agency PTI that Xu, former Ambassador to Afghanistan and Romania, has been appointed as China’s new envoy in India.
