UN Ambassador Nikki Haley is in Washington, D.C., on Monday for what could be an important meal with President Donald Trump and members of the UN Security Council.

Haley will eat lunch with the president and 14 other ambassadors who make up the United Nations’ top decision-making body.

The meeting comes amid international tensions over North Korea’s missile program, and after Trump was often critical of the UN during last year’s presidential campaign.

In addition to meeting the president, Haley tweeted that she will also introduce her fellow ambassadors to H.R. McMaster, Trump’s national security adviser, and members of Congress.

Haley is currently the president of the Security Council, a job that rotates monthly between the five permanent members of the council; the U.S., Britain, China, France and Russia.
