Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stopped briefly to address reporters about updates in negotiations with North Korea and thank the soon-retiring UN Ambassador Nikki Haley for her service.
“I wanted to thank ambassador Haley for the good work that she’s done,” he said.
“She’s been a great partner of mine for now five months that she and I have been working together. I want to wish her very well in whatever comes next for her.”
He added that a second North Korea summit is in the works.
According to CNN reporting, Pompeo was caught off guard by the resignation announcement and only found out this morning, a few hours before Haley’s press conference with President Donald Trump.
