THE GOVERNMENT through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is expected to announce the two diplomats to head the mission in Taiwan and the United Nations in New York, United States next month.

While for New York, the Ministry will appoint a diplomat to replace Collin Beck, who had spent 12 years there and decided to return home.
