 U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met with his likely successor Rex Tillerson on Thursday, their first meeting since U.S. President-elect Donald Trump named the former oil executive as his pick for the job, a senior State Department official said.

The brief meeting took place at the Washington transition offices just hours before Kerry is set to step down and depart the State Department later on Thursday. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is expected to vote as soon as Monday to approve Tillerson as new secretary of state.
