"Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo will travel to Tokyo, Japan on October 4 to 6. Planned meetings with the Quad Foreign Ministers in Tokyo will focus on pressing issues of the Indo-Pacific region. Secretary Pompeo expects to be traveling to Asia again in October and will work to reschedule visits on that trip, that is now just a few weeks off," the Saturday statement says.
Initially, Pompeo planned to visit Japan, Mongolia and South Korea between October 4 and October 8.
South Korea’s Foreign Ministry said in a Sunday statement that it regretted the postponement of Pompeo’s visit to the country and hoped for a new date for the trip to be set soon.
