Statement attributable to the UNAMA Spokesperson Dan McNorton
KABUL - When Kai Eide started this job he had a two-year horizon - as had his predecessors.
Kai Eide has asked the United Nations Secretary-General to start the process to identify his successor.
This is not a question of resignation. Kai Eide is sticking to the timetable that he outlined when he took the job in March 2008.
This confirms his intention not to renew his contract.
