A statement from the office of the spokesperson in Washington said that in the coming days, Doug Frantz would assist embassy colleagues with strategic communications efforts and meet with Kabul-based international and Afghan journalists.

“He plans to emphasize the priority Secretary Kerry places on an audit process that ensures a legitimate outcome and agreement on the details of a government of national unity,” it added.
