    The U.S. State Department has promised that the final report on the Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review will be released this week, most likely on Dec. 15, Josh Rogin of “The Cable” reports.

    “The final interagency approval is still pending, but the State Department is committed to getting it done and releasing the document next week, multiple State Department sources confirmed to The Cable today (Dec. 10),” Rogin writes.

    A draft copy of the QDDR’s recommendations was leaked to the public in November. The review seeks to streamline and strengthen the operations of the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development.
