Newly appointed Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang will make a brief stopover at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport early Tuesday. 

Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen confirmed this to UNB.

Asked whether he will have a brief meeting with his Chinese counterpart, Momen did not elaborate further saying, "I don't know."

He said it is not an official visit to Bangladesh, but the Chinese foreign minister will make a stopover here on his way to another destination.

Qin Gang has started his term with a weeklong trip to five African countries.

The foreign minister, who until recently was ambassador to the US, will visit Ethiopia, Gabon, Angola, Benin and Egypt from January 9 to 16, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said at a daily media briefing on Monday.

Momen is scheduled to receive Qin Gang at around 1am.
