According to a report by ABC News, the death comes two days after Wei condemned comments by visiting US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who denounced Chinese investments in Israel and accused China of hiding information about the coronavirus outbreak.

The ambassador is survived by his wife and a son, both of whom are not in Israel.
