US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated on Wednesday that Washington will open an embassy within the Maldives for the primary time, throughout a five-day Asia journey making an attempt to counterbalance the rise of China within 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.
