China Again Blocks UN’s Move to List JeM Chief Masood Azhar as Global Terrorist
India’s bid to get Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed’s chief Masood Azhar as a “global terrorist” by the UN Security Council was once again blocked by China as it placed a “technical” hold on the resolution on Wednesday. This is the fourth time that China has blocked the resolution against Azhar since 2009.
The proposal to designate Azhar under the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council was moved by France, the UK and the US on February 27, days after the Pulwama terror attack carried out by a suicide bomber belonging to the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) that led to a flare-up in tensions between India and Pakistan.
