(AFP) – The new foreign minister, Mike Pompeo, plans to visit Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Israel this weekend, the State Department said Thursday.
Pompeo will visit these countries over the weekend after a stopover in Brussels for a meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
“No foreign minister in recent history has made a trip at this speed,” State Department spokesman Heather Nauwert told reporters.
The US Senate approved earlier Thursday the appointment of CIA Director Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State for President Donald Trump’s administration.
