According to information provided to Pravda, US representatives discussed the offer with Kubiš during his visit to Washington at the beginning of February. The new ambassador's main role will be to persuade countries all over the world to give Afghanistan more help in its efforts to ensure security and economic development. If Kubiš became the ambassador, he would very likely leave his current post as Foreign Minister. SITA
