Newly-appointed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be taking up his new jobs s the US faces “array of delicate and potentially dangerous” foreign policy issues, the Washington Post says. Among them is the Arab Quartet’s ongoing spat with Qatar, which Trump is hoping to resolve in a May summit with the help of the diplomatically inexperienced Pompeo.
