Swiss Foreign Minister Burkhalter to step down

Geneva, 20 June, (

Switzerland's top diplomat, Didier Burkhalter, has handed in his notice and will depart from the job at the end of October.

The Swiss foreign minister said in his resignation letter on Wednesday that it was time to write a new page in his life.

"I do not know yet what ink I will use for this, but I think it will have more personal colors and be less visible publicly," Burkhalter.

Burkhalter grew up in the French-speaking Western Swiss canton of Neuchâtel and has been a member of the Swiss cabinet since 2009, wrote in French.
