Remarks With Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland Before Their Meeting
FOREIGN MINISTER FREELAND: Great to see you, Mr. Secretary.
SECRETARY POMPEO: Welcome, welcome. We’re looking forward to our visit. Our great partners to the north are always that – great partners, and I am confident that the foreign minister and I will have a great relationship as well.
FOREIGN MINISTER FREELAND: Okay. Well, thank you very much, Mr. Secretary. The Secretary of State and I spoke, I think maybe less than an hour after your confirmation when you were in the plane.
SECRETARY POMPEO: Yes, exactly. I was on my way to Brussels, yes, ma’am.
FOREIGN MINISTER FREELAND: And it’s a pleasure to meet you in person.
(In French.) Thank you.
SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you. Thank you all.
