Taiwan is getting a new intelligence chief. President Tsai Ing-wen appointed a British-educated senior diplomat. It’s part of a broader government reshuffle as the island faces growing military threats from China.

Deputy foreign minister Tsai Ming-yen previously served as Taiwan’s de facto ambassador to the European Union.

He has a doctorate from King’s College London’s department of war studies, worked as an advisor to Taiwan’s defense ministry, and the China-policy making Mainland Affairs Council.

The diplomat and the president share a common family name, but are not related.
