U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne, on Thursday will play host to his successor, Joe Biden, and his wife, Jill, at the Naval Observatory that serves as the official vice presidential residence, reported Reuters.

"The Cheneys and the Bidens will have a private meeting and then tour the residence," Cheney spokeswoman Megan Mitchell said on Wednesday. The meeting is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. EST (2215 GMT).

It will follow a gathering President George W. Bush and Laura Bush had with President-elect Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, at the White House on Monday when they toured the executive mansion and held discussions.
