China Appoints New Head of Taiwan Affairs Office: Report

From AFP:

China’s Vice Foreign Minister was on Tuesday appointed head of the Taiwan Affairs Office, the government’s executive arm handling sensitive ties with the island, state media said.

Wang, a career diplomat who was ambassador to Japan at one of the most difficult periods in Sino-Japanese relations between 2004 and 2007, will head up the office at a critical time in relations between China and Taiwan.

Tensions between the two traditional rivals have eased substantially in the past few months, and the two have decided to resume talks next week, after a suspension of more than a decade.
