Pompeo said in a memo to staff on Friday that Khalilzad will lead US efforts to support, facilitate, and participate in a peace process between government and the Taliban.

In the memo Pompeo said he was confident in Khalilzad’s ability to execute the mission.
“I am confident in Ambassador Khalilzad’s ability to execute this mission, and we are grateful for his willingness to step back into public service.  As we welcome him back to the Department, let us rededicate ourselves to achieving a durable peace in Afghanistan that will ensure security for the American people.  This goal is realistic. We have a team in place to accomplish it.  Let’s get the job done,” said Pompeo in the memo.
Khalilzad was the United States ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush and has been involved with U.S policy makers at the White House, State Department and Pentagon since the mid-1980s.  He has also served as U.S ambassador to Afghanistan and U.S ambassador to Iraq.
Reuters reported recently that the diplomat is well suited to the difficult task of persuading the insurgents to talk, according to a former senior U.S. official, who asked not to be further identified.
