Paul D Wolfowitz, who resigned as World Bank chief after serving as second-in-command at the Pentagon, has returned to the Bush administration, albeit in an advisory role, reports The New York Times.

The department of state is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Paul Wolfowitz as the chairman of the secretary of state's International Security Advisory Board. As we said when the job offer was reported in December, the board meets quarterly to provide advice to the secretary of state and one of her deputies based on classified intelligence on some of the most important issues in United States foreign policy, from Iran to North Korea.

His experience in arms control issues stretches back to the 1970's, but his role in the Iraq war was the basis of last month's criticism of the reported appointment.
