Like most countries, China will send a low -ranking official to the overblown Jubilee celebrations in Zambia.
Some countries such as Malawi will send former presidents instead of serving leaders; this shows how Zambia has lost standing on the international scene.
Chinese President Xi Jinping will send an envoy to attend the celebrations, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said.
Qiangba Puncog, vice chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, China’s legislature, is set to attend the event, spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a regular press conference Tuesday in Beijing.
The Chinese official coming to Zambia is equivalent to a deputy chairman of the public accounts committee in parliament.
