The US Senate confirmed Senator John Kerry will be the next secretary of state, approving President Barack Obama's pick to replace Hillary Clinton as America's top diplomat.

Kerry -- a senator from Massachusetts best known outside the United States for his unsuccessful 2004 presidential campaign -- was nominated last month to take over the foreign affairs portfolio in Obama's second term team.

The Senate voted 94-3 in favour of the veteran Democratic lawmaker after the chamber's Foreign Relations Committee, which Kerry chairs, approved the nomination earlier in the day.
