Paalam! Trump reassigns Sung Kim as US Ambassador to Indonesia


It’s official: United States Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim is packing his bags and moving on to a new assignment.

US President Donald Trump has officially plucked out Kim from Manila and reassigned him as US envoy to Indonesia.

Kim, a Californian with Asian descent, is no stranger to moving countries. After all, he has spent time working in various embassies in Korea, Japan, and Malaysia.

The endearing diplomat is a career member of the US Senior Foreign Service, a seasoned lawyer, and a fluent speaker of English, Korean and Japanese, according to the White House.

While preparing to head out for his next post, Kim sat down with his “friend and counterpart,” Philippine Ambassador to the US Babe Romualdez apparently to bid each other farewell.

We’ll surely miss the always smiling Kim who Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Locsin called one the greatest US ambassadors this country ever had.
