Dubrovnik, Croatia:

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday he tested negative for the coronavirus after President Donald Trump announced he was infected and in quarantine.

“I feel fantastic,” Pompeo told reporters who traveled with him to Dubrovnik, Croatia, the final stop on a mini European tour.

Pompeo said he was tested “about 30 minutes ago” a few hours after Trump’s announcement, adding it was the fourth time he had been tested in the past two and a half weeks.

The top American diplomat said he has not interacted with the president since the Abraham Accord was signed in Washington on September 15, when Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates recognized Israel.

“We pray for the president and the first lady to recover quickly,” he said.

During his short stay in the southern Adriatic, Pompeo will meet Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic and Foreign Minister Gordan Grlic Radman.

Talks will particularly focus on buying fighter jets and abolishing visas for Croatian travelers to the US, Croatian officials said earlier
