Borrell postpones China trip over positive COVID test

TEHRAN, Apr. 12 (MNA) – The EU's foreign affairs chief Josep Borrell has postponed a planned trip to China after testing positive for Covid-19.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Borrell said that he was "feeling well" and had no symptoms.

"I have tested positive for Covid-19 and therefore unfortunately will need to postpone my visit to China. I am feeling well and have no symptoms," he wrote.

Borrell was set to meet the Chinese foreign and defense ministers during the three-day visit to Beijing starting on Thursday, The National reported.

The trip to China would have made Borrell the latest in a stream of high-ranking European officials to visit Beijing after it opened up from strict Covid rules last year.
