UN envoy to Afghanista

"Kai Eide has asked the United Nations Secretary-General to start the process to identify his successor," Dan McNorton, a spokesman for UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), said in a statement.

The statement said Eide was sticking to the term of his two-year contract, which started in March 2008, but will not continue his role as the top UN official in the war-torn country.

"This confirms his intention not to renew his contract," the statement said.
