U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will visit Kuwait on Tuesday, the Gulf country's deputy foreign minister said, ONAreports citing Anadolu Agency.

The visit "represents an appropriate and important opportunity to sign a number of agreements between the two friendly states in the fields of defense, security and customs cooperation," Khaled al-Jarallah said in statement on Monday. 

He said Pompeo's talks in Kuwait will tackle regional issues, particularly the situation in Yemen and Syria.

The top U.S. diplomat's visit to the Gulf state is part of a regional tour, which will also take him to Lebanon, according to the U.S. State Department.
