U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will visit South Korea next week.
The State Department said Tuesday in a press release that Pompeo will be in Seoul from October 7-8.
During his two-day stay, he will sit down with high-level officials, including Seoul's Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha.
It will be his first visit in more than a year – the last time he was in South Korea was when he accompanied President Donald Trump in June 2019.
Ahead of his trip here, the top U.S. diplomat will travel to Tokyo for a meeting with his Australian, Indian and Japanese counterparts to discuss issues of mutual concern, including regional security, as well as stop by the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar.
In a tweet, Pompeo said he looks forward to the visits.
