US names Dobbins new Afghan-Pakistan envoy

US Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday named veteran diplomat James Dobbins to be the new special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan at what he called a "pivotal moment" for the two nations.

Dobbins, who has served in difficult posts such as Kosovo and in 2001 raised the US flag over the embassy in Kabul after the fall of the Taliban, will be taking up a job once held by Richard Holbrooke, Kerry said in a statement. (AFP)
