The top U.S. envoy to Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, is stepping down from his role only weeks after the chaotic withdrawal of U.S. forces from Kabul.

The BBC's David Willis reports.

[Reporter]

Zalmay Khalilzad was the architect of the Trump administration's peace deal with the Taliban -- an agreement that was negotiated, of course, without the input of the Afghan government, which paved the way for a full U.S. withdrawal in exchange for the Taliban agreeing not to target U.S. troops.

And he then pressed the Taliban and the Western-backed government in Afghanistan to negotiate a political settlement to the conflict, only of course for Ashraf Ghani's government to collapse and the Taliban to sweep through and seize control of the country.
