China’s ambassador to Israel was found dead in his home north of Tel Aviv on Sunday. The Israeli Foreign Ministry gave this information. No cause of death has been stated and Israeli police said that they are investigating the case. Corona virus Du Wei (58) was appointed as China’s ambassador to Israel in February amid a global epidemic crisis.
He was previously China’s ambassador to Ukraine. He is survived by his wife and a son and both were not in Israel. Two days before his death, he criticized US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for comments that condemned China’s investment in Israel and accused China of hiding information about the corona virus.
