Mike Pompeo to Visit Beijing Next Week, China Confirms

BEIJING – United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will visit China on next week, the Chinese foreign ministry confirmed on Wednesday.

Pompeo will travel to Beijing a day after meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to continue talks on denuclearization, and prepare for a second summit between Kim and US President Donald Trump.

“China and the United States will exchange views on bilateral ties and regional and international issues of common concern,” said foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying, according to state-run agency Xinhua.

The visit to North Korea shows “forward progress and momentum” in the normalization of relations between Washington and Pyongyang, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said at a press briefing on Tuesday.

“Obviously these conversations are going in the right direction, and we feel confident enough to hop on a plane to head there,” she added.

This will be Pompeo’s third visit to North Korea as the US Secretary of State.

Pompeo will travel on Oct. 6-7 to Japan, from where he will go to Pyongyang to meet Kim, followed by visits to South Korea and China.

Pompeo’s visit to Beijing comes amid escalated tensions between China and the US due to an ongoing trade war between the two.
