DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is planning to attend events in the Des Moines area next week.

The State Department announced Friday that Pompeo would be in the Des Moines area on Sunday and Monday to discuss agriculture issue and about how the agency serves U.S. interests by promoting American exports.

Pompeo plans to speak at a Future Farmers of America event, tour an agriculture research center and attend an event at the World Food Prize headquarters in Des Moines. He also will meet with Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds.

The State Department says former Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, now the ambassador to China, will accompany Pompeo.

The department is expected to provide more details about the visit later.
