United Nations: United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon today appointed a Pakistani army general as the Military Adviser for United Nations Peacekeeping Operations.

Lieutenant General Maqsood Ahmed, who replaces Senegal's Lieutenant General Babacar Gaye whose tour of duty ended on July 8, recently completed his duties as a Corps Commander in the Pakistan Army, an appointment that he had held since February 2013.

Lieutenant General Ahmed has held a number of senior appointments, including serving as an Infantry Commander.

His military appointments comprised a combination of command and staff appointments and include a United Nations peacekeeping tour of duty in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 2005-2006, a UN statement said.

So what? Big Deal!

This doesn't mean the Paki General gets a free hand to do whatever he wants. He would have to discharge his duties within the UN envelope.

If anything, this is a good opportunity for the general (assuming he is as jehadi as the rest of paki generals are) to learn some discipline and be reformed a bit.
