New US ambassador to China takes up post

Gary Locke said Beijing and Washington should work together more to tackle global problems.



Beijing: The new US ambassador to China says Beijing and Washington should work together more to tackle global problems, and that he will try to promote greater understanding between the two nations.

Former US secretary of commerce, Gary Locke, told a news conference on Sunday that he was humbled and honoured to be the first Chinese-American to become the top China envoy. Locke was born in Washington State to parents who migrated from China.

Locke replaces Jon Huntsman, who left in April to explore a presidential bid.
Locke`s first big event will be a visit by Vice President Joe Biden to China that begins on Tuesday.
