OBAMA TAPS SENIOR DIPLOMAT AS MALAYSIA ENVOY

0

WASHINGTON, D.C.: President Barack Obama on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) named the acting top US diplomat on East Asia to be ambassador to Malaysia, fresh after an election in which the opposition alleged irregularities. Joe Yun, whose previous assignments have included South Korea, Thailand and Indonesia, needs Senate confirmation, which will likely be easy if not swift. He would replace Paul Jones, a fellow career diplomat whose term is ending.
