China’s ex-Foreign Minister Qin Gang was ousted after alleged affair, WSJ reports

China’s former Foreign Minister Qin Gang, who was removed from his position in July, reportedly had an extramarital affair while serving as ambassador to the United States, according to the Wall Street Journal. The investigation is now focused on whether the affair or Qin’s conduct compromised China’s national security. The report states that senior Chinese officials were informed that an internal Communist Party investigation discovered Qin’s involvement in the affair throughout his tenure as ambassador, which resulted in the birth of a child in the U.S. Qin’s replacement as foreign minister, Wang Yi, took over in July after Qin’s mysterious one-month absence from duties. Qin served as China’s top envoy in Washington from July 2021 until January of this year. During a press briefing, China’s foreign ministry spokesperson Mao Ning responded to the article by stating that the Chinese side had previously released information on the appointment and removal of the foreign minister and was unaware of the additional information mentioned in the report. The article concludes with the standard reporting information.
