(CNN) - He gets sworn in as vice president in 11 days, but for today, Joe Biden's a world away from Washington.
The vice president-elect arrived in Islamabad, Pakistan Friday, as part of a congressional delegation. A U.S. embassy spokesman in Pakistan says Biden and Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina are scheduled to talk with senior Pakistan governmental officials on a variety of regional issues.
Biden was elected vice president on November 4, and re-elected as senator from Delaware. He was sworn in as senator Tuesday for the seventh time, and will hold the seat until he steps down just prior to Inauguration Day. Biden is still chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee until he resigns his seat, and in that capacity he's leading this congressional delegation to southwestern Asian countries.
