U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman Jr. deflected any discussion of a possible presidential bid, saying he won't make a decision about his future until after he returns to the United States in two weeks.

"While in China, we serve our country, we don't do politics," the former Utah governor told KSL-TV during a wide-ranging interview this week about his experiences since leaving Utah in 2009.
