China’s foreign minister to visit Panama under new diplomatic ties

From AFP:

Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi will visit Panama at the end of this week, according to officials — three months after the countries established diplomatic ties at the expense of Taiwan.

He will meet with Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela on Saturday. Varela announced his country had opened diplomatic relations with China on June 12, upgrading ties previously focused only on trade.

China is the second-biggest user of the Panama Canal after the United States.
