The abrupt removal of Qin Gang highlights the “uncertainty and lack of transparency” in China’s political system, according to analysts

Observers noted that the unexpected removal of Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang after a month-long absence from official responsibilities highlighted the unpredictable nature and lack of transparency in China's political system. After just seven months on the job, the 57-year-old was fired from his position by Beijing's highest legislative body on Tuesday (July 25), putting an end to rumors about what had transpired after he vanished from the public eye, which observers say is exceedingly rare for the face of Chinese diplomacy.
