China Blocks UN’s Move to Designate Masood Azhar as Global Terrorist

China Blocks UN’s Move to Designate Masood Azhar as Global Terrorist

New Delhi: In a major setback to India’s efforts to designate (Jaish-e-Mohammed) JeM Chief Masood Azhar as global terrorist, China has put a technical hold on the resolution by the United Nations. On February 27th , France, the UK and the US  had moved the UN Security Council with the proposal to designate Azhar under the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee. This came days after the deadly Pulwama terror attack carried out by JeM in which more than 40 security personnel were killed. Since 2009, China has vetoed the resolution against Azhar four times.

Minutes after China’s technical hold, the External Affairs Ministry issued a statement saying “This (technical hold) has prevented action by the international community to designate the leader of Jaish-e-Mohammed, a proscribed and active terrorist organisation which has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir on 14 February 2019,”. 

It also said India is grateful for the efforts of the member states who moved the designation proposal. India will continue to pursue all available avenues to ensure that terrorist leaders who are involved in heinous attacks are brought to justice, the MEA said 

According to the MEA, India received unprecedented support from Security Council members as well as non-members, who joined as co-sponsors to designate Masood Azhar as global terrorist.  .

This if for the fourth time China, a veto-wielding permanent member of the Security Council, has blocked the proposal from being adopted by the Sanctions Committee.

 Global terrorist designation would have resulted in global ban on JEM, freezing of assets, travel ban and an arms embargo.
