Beijing, June 1 (Xinhua-ANI): Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin said Friday that senior Chinese diplomat Wu Hongbo will act as a "competent" head of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday appointed Wu as UN undersecretary-general to lead the Department of Economic and Social Affairs.
