Taipei, Dec. 10 (CNA) Taiwan's representative to the United States territory of Guam Paul Chen (陳盈連) will soon swap places with his counterpart in Nauru, the Cabinet said recently, after approving the reshuffle.

Chen, who has been serving as Taiwan's top diplomat to Guam since 2020, will be reassigned as ambassador to Nauru, one of Taiwan's diplomatic allies in the Pacific region, the Cabinet said on Dec. 6.

Meanwhile, Taiwan's sitting Ambassador to Nauru Joseph Chow (周進發) will take over Chen's position in Guam, in a reshuffle proposed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), according to the Cabinet.

Neither MOFA nor the Cabinet has given any indication of when the reassignments will take effect.
