US President-elect Joe Biden has chosen Obama administration veteran Antony Blinken for the top foreign policy job in the US.
Blinken faces the tough task of rebuilding global relationships and repairing a broken State Department.
"We have no time to lose when it comes to our national security and foreign policy," Biden said in a statement.
"These individuals are equally as experienced and crisis-tested as they are innovative and imaginative," he said.
Antony Blinken, former deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the Barack Obama administration, has been tapped to be Secretary of State. His nomination must be submitted to the US Senate for approval.
