India disappointed as China blocks bid to ban JeM chief

India disappointed as China blocks bid to ban JeM chief

The attack in Kashmir put pressure on China - a close ally of Pakistan - to alter its position at the United Nations Security Council, where the government in Beijing has blocked India's attempts to list Azhar as a designated terrorist. "This is a failure of Narendra Modi's Jhula diplomacy", he added.

China has blocked three previous attempts at the committee on sanctions against Al-Qaeda and IS-linked groups to blacklist the JeM leader.

China said it needed "more time to examine" the proposal, a diplomat at the United Nations told the Press Trust of India news agency. "We are grateful for the efforts of the Member States who moved the designation proposal and the unprecedented number of all other Security Council members as well as non-members who joined as co-sponsors", said the MEA. "We still need more time and thus put forward a technical hold, which is in full compliance with the rules of procedure of the 1267 Committee of the Security Council".

We were still recuperating with the losses suffered as a result of the Pulwama terror attack, and a new issue has cropped up.

On the issue of listing Azhar, he said, "I want to say that China always adopts a responsible attitude, engage in consultations with various parties and properly deal with this issue".

In a statement, the Indian foreign ministry said it "was disappointed by the outcome", adding it would continue to pursue all avenues to make sure "terrorist leaders who are involved in heinous attacks on Indian citizens are brought to justice".

The proposal to designate Azhar under the 1267 al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council was moved by France, UK and the USA on February 27 after the attack in Pulwama on Feb 14 that had killed 40 Indian troops.
