Australia's new Foreign Minister Bob Carr is set to be sworn in.

He was named by Prime Minister Julia Gillard over a week ago to replace Kevin Rudd, who resigned last month in the lead-up to a leadership vote.

Carr, a former New South Wales premier, will officially join the Senate before being sworn in as FM.

His appointment came amid intense speculation over the new cabinet line-up after Gillard defeated Rudd in a party leadership vote.
