WASHINGTON (AP) — Expect no diplomatic faux pas here: Secretary of State John Kerry is hosting five of his predecessors in a rare public reunion for the groundbreaking of a museum commemorating the achievements of American statesmanship.

Kerry is being joined at the State Department by former top U.S. diplomats Henry Kissinger, James Baker III, Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell and Hillary Rodham Clinton. Of the living former secretaries of state, only Condoleezza Rice and George Shultz were not present.

The US Diplomacy Center will be located at the department and comprise 40,000 square feet of interactive exhibits and artifacts and will offer educational programs.
