The U.S. State Department confirmed the imminent resignation of Hillary Clinton. Earlier, she said she was going to transfer the cases to the successor and return to private life.
"I do not think that the Secretary of State's plans have changed" - State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland told reporters. She thus refused to comment on questions from the press about what international issues will be a priority for the new U.S. administration after the presidential election.
American media, citing sources in the administration, wrote that the U.S. ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, and the head of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, John Kerry, both have a high chance to take this position.
