The Biden administration’s top envoy for Afghanistan, Khalilzad, tendered his resignation on Monday in a letter sent to Secretary of State Antony Blinken. His resignation went into effect on Tuesday.
Khalilzad told Blinken that it was "the right time" to leave, "at a juncture when we are entering a new phase in our Afghanistan policy."
"Tomorrow, I step down from my position as the Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation. I decided that now is the right time to do so, at a juncture when we are entering a new phase in our Afghanistan policy," he wrote in the letter, which was obtained by Politico.
Khalilzad admits “the political arrangement between the Afghan government and the Taliban did not go forward as envisaged. The reasons for this are too complex and I will share my thoughts in the coming day and weeks."
"Going forward, I plan to contribute to the discussion and debate about not only what happened but what should be done next," he continued.#Afghanistan #US Envoy 21-10-19
