Tony Blair is preparing to step back as envoy for the Middle East Quartet but wants to remain part of the peace process.

Blair has realized that his high-profile role is no longer appropriate, the London-based Financial Times reported Sunday, citing “several people familiar with the situation.”

On Saturday, the former British prime minister reportedly met with US Secretary of State John Kerry in the Red Sea resort city Sharm el-Sheik to discuss a job change, according to the newspaper. Blair also spoke with UN foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.
