US President Donald Trump has thanked Rex Tillerson for the service and confirmed that CIA Director Mike Pompeo will become a new state secretary.

Axar.az reports citing Washington Post.

President Trump tweeted that he was confident that Pompeo would do a "fantastic job" in his new post.

Trump nominated intelligence officer Gina Haspel to replace Pompeo at the CIA. Trump appointed Haspel, a counterterrorism specialist, as the CIA's deputy director in February 2017.

Trump appointed Pompeo as his CIA director in January 2017. Prior to that, the official served as a lawmaker in the House of Representatives' select committee on intelligence, and the subcommittee on the CIA.

Before Tuesday's announcement, rumors circulated about Secretary Tillerson's possible intention to resign for several months.
