Ryan Crocker, the U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, will step down from his post this summer, after a year of service, CNN reports.
Cameron Munter, the U.S. ambassador to Pakistan, will also leave his post this summer. Serving short tours is common in the diplomatic ranks, CNN reported.
In 2002, Crocker was tasked with overseeing the reopening of the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, after it had been closed during the years of Taliban control. He began his current tour in July of 2011.
