China Blocks India’S Bid To Designate Masood Azhar As Global Terrorist In UNSC

  • China Blocks India’S Bid To Designate Masood Azhar As Global Terrorist In UNSC

In a setback for India, China once again placed a technical hold on a proposal in the UN Security Council to ban terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Maulana Masood Azhar late Wednesday.

 

This is the fourth time China has blocked India’s bid to designate Azhar as a global terrorist in the UNSC.


“We are disappointed by this outcome. This has prevented action by the international community to designate the leader of JeM, a proscribed and active terrorist organization which has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack in J&K on Feb 14,” India responded.


India has been reaching out to world leaders to blacklist Azhar ever since the JeM claimed responsibility for the deadly Pulwama terror attack, which left 40 CRPF personnel dead last month.


Earlier today, China hinted that it may again block the move, stating that “the solution that is acceptable to all sides” is conducive to resolve the issue.


On Tuesday, New Delhi intensified its diplomatic engagement in New York, Washington and Beijing among other world capitals.
