ISLAMABAD US strong opposition to delisting Taliban leaders from the United Nations blacklist has surfaced at a time when powerful Indo-US lobby has finalised modalities for military rule in Afghanistan. US Special Envoy for Pakistan and Afghanistan, Richard Holbrooke, blatantly uttered on Tuesday that US did not support Afghan reconciliation plan. Giving a rebuff to Afghan President Hamid Karzais plan to request UN for delisting 50 Taliban leaders as reported by Washington Post, Holbrooke voiced opposition for 'blanket removal of Taliban leaders from UN blacklist. Sensing Pakistans usual submissive posture towards US, the envoy did not deem it worthy to soften his grim tone towards the country and was encouraged to say that Pakistan did not have any right to determine Afghanistans future. Atle Hetland, a former top official of UN, Afghanistan, who also served in United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), Pakistan, believes that negotiating with Taliban would Kill US motives in Afghanistan. Talking to this correspondent here on Saturday, he said that US would never support de-listing of Taliban leaders as it could 'hurt the countrys interests in the region. They want to kick with one leg and cooperate with the other, the leg with cooperation is for India and the other one with a kick is for Pakistan, he believes about US sponsored NATOs policy in Afghanistan. Atles former colleagues who are still serving United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), tell him that dialogue with Taliban would remain to be an irreconcilable issue between UN and the US. Other credible insiders in UNAMA confided to this correspondent that if UN succeeds to de-list certain Taliban leaders from its blacklist, it would be in a position to exert pressure on NATO for the closure of Bagram prison, while India, with US at its back, would exhaust every option to oppose any such move that could give a setback to Indo-US military nexus that uses the detained militants at Bagram air base to destabilise the region, particularly Pakistan and Iran. UN had long demanded of NATO to review the list of Bagram detainees. A few days before Jundullahs convicted chief Abdol Malek Rigi was arrested in February, this year, TheNation had reported that after intensive 'deliberations, the Indo-US military and diplomatic camps in Afghanistan were arranging amnesty for the top military commanders of the banned militant organisations and were using these militants to destabilise Pakistan. Following the authoritative disposition of Holbrooke towards Pakistan, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is likely to continue her stinging tenor as she arrives here today. The indifferent attitude of India courtesy Pakistans bowing stance, as reflected during Indian Foreign Minister S M Krishnas recent visit, aptly notes that the US and India stand in uniformity of interests to push Pakistan against the wall in pursuit of their interests in Afghanistan.
