DescriptionAnthony Zinni, a retired general and the United States envoy tasked with resolving the Qatar dispute, has resigned from his position at the State Department, dealing a blow to the Trump administration's efforts to resolve the Qatar crisis.

Gen Zinni’s resignation, first reported by CBS, was confirmed by The National. A US official told The National that the timing is unrelated to Mr Pompeo’s trip and Gen Zinni only agreed to join the administration in August 2017 on temporary basis.

The resignation, however, and the departure of another General from the administration following Defense Secretary James Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has overshadowed the news. Mr Zinni previously served as the special envoy to the Middle East under former President George W Bush, as well as the head of US Central Command.
