The Department of State is well along in its transition efforts with
President-elect Biden’s team. We are fully committed to the completion
of a smooth and orderly transition process to be finalized over the next 8
days. Both the Department and the President-elect’s team have been fully
engaged for several weeks toward this end, and we are pleased with the
level of cooperation and professionalism that has been displayed.
We are expecting shortly a plan from the incoming administration
identifying the career officials who will remain in positions of
responsibility on an acting basis until the Senate confirmation process is
complete for incoming officials. As a result, we are cancelling all
planned travel this week, including the Secretary’s trip to Europe.
