Biden mulls to invite more former Obama senior officials to his administration: Reports


Washington [US]: US President-elect Joe Biden is considering inviting additional former senior Obama administration officials with experience in foreign affairs to his cabinet, Politico reported on Tuesday.

Veteran diplomat Wendy Sherman, the lead negotiator for the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement, will likely be nominated for the position of Deputy Secretary of State, the report said citing sources close to the Biden transition team.

Another veteran diplomat, Victoria Nuland, may become Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs. Nuland served as Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs during the Obama administration, the report said.
