Ivanka Trump will meet with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha when she visits the U.S. following the abrupt ousting of secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Foreign Ministry apokesman Noh Kyu-duk confirmed Thursday that Trump, a White House adviser, would meet with Kang, KBS World Radio reported.

The purpose and exact date of the meeting are not yet clear.

{mosads}Kang is also expected to meet with Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan and Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) during her visit.

It was previously reported that Kang would meet with Tillerson to discuss talks with North Korea, among other issues, but Tillerson was ousted earlier this week from his role.

Trump said earlier this week he made the decision to oust Tillerson on his own and that Tillerson would be “much happier now.”

Trump has nominated CIA Director Mike Pompeo to replace Tillerson. Trump said he and Pompeo are “always on the same wavelength.”
