President-elect Joe Biden’s pick for secretary of state is expected to visit the State Department and meet with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday for the first time since Biden’s victory, according to three sources familiar with the planning.

The meeting between Antony Blinken and Pompeo — planned to occur days after the Electoral College cemented Biden’s victory on Monday — will mark the first formal recognition by President Donald Trump’s top diplomat that he is preparing to hand over the reins of American foreign policy to his successor. The meeting is scheduled to last for only 15 minutes, but State Department officials view it as a positive step, one of the sources said.

The meeting will be one of the first high-level face-to-face meetings between a Biden team nominee and a member of Trump’s Cabinet. In the immediate aftermath of the election, Pompeo refused to acknowledge Biden’s victory and ignited a furor among diplomats by stating that “there will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration.”
