Mike Pompeo says US will open embassy in Maldives for first time


US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo mentioned on Wednesday that Washington will open an embassy in the Maldives for the first time, throughout a five-day Asia journey trying to counterbalance the rise of China in the area.

“Getting this facility open won’t happen overnight but it’s worth it,” Pompeo instructed a information convention on an island resort close to the archipelago’s capital Male.

“It’s the right thing to do. Your role here in the Indo-Pacific and in the international community is increasingly important.”
