ISLAMABAD After 'ages of hostility, the powerful NATO camp in Afghanistan has perhaps finally succeeded to make the UN yield before the US agenda. Off-the-curtain discussions with key officials in the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) hint at a possible backtrack on part of the international body that suggests a back off from the UNs categorical opposition to NATOs reckless operations in Afghanistan, Indo-US military nexus, and interference of banned militant groups in Afghanistans affairs. A manifestation of this mega U-turn came to light just recently when earlier this week, the UN Afghanistans Chief, Steffan de Mistura, felt 'extremely comfortable working with the incumbent NATOs top commander General Petraeus in Afghanistan. This overexcitement comes from the cordial friendship that both the 'buddies, Petraeus and Mistura, enjoyed while doing away with their respective official assignments in Iraq during good old days. According to the UN officials based in Afghanistan, one key reason of substituting Petraeus with McChrystal, other than the latters reckless style, bragging disposition towards NATOs evasive 'achievements and his utter disregard for the UN and the US diplomatic circles that contributed to the US generals ouster from Afghanistan, is the compatible 'chemistry of Petraeus with UNAMAs top man. Ties between the UN and the NATO command have been on souring end since the last year. From the fraudulent presidential elections 2009 to the stealthy visits of banned foreign militants in Afghanistan with the patronage of powerful American and Indian lobbies, the former Chief Kai-Eide had strongly disagreed with the US and Afghan Governments policies. Edies close aides say that he had been outrightly slamming the aforesaid regimes in the informal gatherings. Given these obvious reasons, the former UN Chief did not seek further extension in his tenure in Afghanistan and stepped down in March this year. His successor Steffan de Mistura, during the early weeks of his posting in Afghanistan, had reportedly reiterated to continue with the policies devised by his predecessorto dialogue with Afghan Taliban solely (excluding foreign terrorist militants) and oppose Indo-US nexusbut the latest pertinent developments have hinted about mega shift in UN policy, followed by a the evident reversal in NATOs 'counterinsurgency strategy in Afghanistan. It was first revealed by TheNation in February this year that the diplomatic circles of the US and those of the UN in Afghanistan were not on same page with NATO command, Afghan and US Governments. The events that followed only added credibility to this newspapers revelations.
