U.S. President-elect Joe Biden has nominated former State Department Secretary Tony Blincoln as Secretary of State.
In addition, he appoints former Vice President Jake Sullivan, a security adviser to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as the White House National Security Advisor.
Biden-elect’s acquisition committee announced the results of the selection on the website on the 23rd local time.
He has also nominated former Secretary of State John Kerry as an envoy for climate change, one of Biden-elect’s greatest challenges.
Along with this, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, a black female diplomat with 35 years of experience, was selected as the US Ambassador to the United Nations.
Appointed Secretary of State, Blincoln is a close associate who oversees the foreign policy of Biden’s presidential camp. He served at the White House National Security Conference during the Bill Clinton administration, and served as Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security at the White House and Deputy Secretary of State for the Barack Obama administration.
Appointed as security adviser, Sullivan served as general manager when Biden-elect was the chairman of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, and served as security adviser when he was vice president.
