Monday’s Mainichi reported that the Biden transition team announced on Saturday that Wendy Sherman will be appointed deputy secretary of state. The paper wrote that Sherman led the nuclear talks with Iran as the under secretary of state for political affairs during the Obama administration, and also served as a North Korea policy coordinator during the Clinton administration. The paper wrote that if Sherman is approved by the Senate, she will become the first female deputy secretary of state. The daily added that Brian McKeon was also nominated to serve as deputy secretary of state, saying although there was only one deputy secretary of state under the Trump administration, there will be two under the new administration.
