Iowa Governor Terry Branstad was sworn in as new China ambassador at 10am CDT.
IPTV will provide coverage of Gov. Terry E. Branstad’s resignation and swearing-in as Ambassador to China on Wednesday, May 24, taking place in the Governor’s formal office at the Iowa State Capitol.
Among Branstad’s most immediate assignments will be working with China to help defuse the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea’s advancing ballistic missile and nuclear weapons programs.
During his hearings before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in May, Branstad told senators, “If confirmed, I hope to use my unique position as an “old friend” of President Xi and a trusted confidant of President Trump to positively influence the U.S.-China relationship.”
