United Nation Security Council: For the third time China has Veto India’s bid to Designate Masood Azhar as a global terrorist in the United Nations Security Council 1267 list.
The United Nations Security Council is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations, charged with the maintenance of international Peace and Security.
Earlier than this China has twice blocked — in 2016 and 2017 — attempts to impose sanctions on the JeM chief. The group itself was added to the terror list in 2001 and they have accepted the responsibility of the Pulwama attack on 14 Feb. UN Security Council was considering a resolution to put Azhar on the UN sanctions blacklist, which would subject him to a global travel ban and assets freeze.
A note received to the United Nations by China has mentioned that it need more time to examine the sanctions requested by India targeting Masood Azhar. The possible solution for the sanctions could only come through dialogue.
