WASHINGTON / BEIJING - US Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman resigned on Monday, amid reports that he might seek the Republican nomination in 2012 and try to deprive President Barack Obama of a second term.

Huntsman, a former Utah governor, handed his resignation letter to the White House and the resignation will be effective from April 30.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs sidestepped questions about Huntsman's political intentions, as anticipation builds for Obama's re-election bid and several prominent Republicans take soundings of their chances.
