Diplomatic Win For India: US, UK and France Ask UN To Blacklist JeM Leader Masood Azhar
The United States, Britain and France proposed on Wednesday that the United Nations Security Council blacklist the head of Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad, which said it attacked an Indian paramilitary convoy in disputed Kashmir.
However, the move is likely to be opposed by China, which previously prevented the Security Council’s Islamic State and Al Qaeda sanctions committee from sanctioning JeM leader Masood Azhar in 2016 and 2017.China’s UN mission did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the new proposal.
The 14 February attack, the most deadly in Kashmir during a 30-year-long insurgency, increased tensions between Pakistan and India with the nuclear-armed neighbours both saying they had shot down each other’s fighter jets on Wednesday.
