U.S. President Joe Biden says he intends to nominate Nicholas Burns as the country’s new ambassador to China. Burns is currently an international relations professor at Harvard University. He has served the U.S. government for 27 years and capped his career by working as Under-Secretary of State for Political Affairs between 2005 and 2008.

Burns will assume the role as the two sides’ bilateral relationship becomes ever more strained. Biden has also nominated Rahm Emanuel, a former Chicago Mayor and White House Chief of Staff under former President Barack Obama, as ambassador to Japan. Both nominations require Senate confirmation.
