India “disappointed” as China blocks bid to ban Azhar at UN
Expresses gratitude for the efforts of the Member States who moved the designation proposal Reiterates to pursue all available avenues to ensure that terrorist leaders are brought to justice 1267 Sanctions Committee fails to come to a decision on the proposal for listing Mohammed Masood Azhar Alvi under the UN Sanctions regime New Delhi, Mar 14 (HS): India is “disappointed” as China has yet again put on hold a proposal at the United Nations (UN) for a ban on Jaish-e-Muhammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar. “We are disappointed by this outcome. This has prevented action by the international community to designate the leader of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), a proscribed and active terrorist organization which has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir on 14 February 2019,” Ministry of External Affairs has said in a statement. It further said, “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.” “We will continue to pursue all available avenues to ensure that terrorist leaders who are involved in heinous attacks on our citizens are brought to justice,” the statement added. The ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee (1267 Sanctions Committee), upon completion of the no-objection period on 13 March 2019, was not able to come to a decision on the proposal for listing Mohammed Masood Azhar Alvi under the UN Sanctions regime, on account of a member placing the proposal on hold. It may be recalled that it is for the fourth time that China has blocked Azhar blacklisting at Pakistan behest, bringing to a halt a renewed push by France, US and UK to blacklist the Pakistan-based terrorist after the Pulwama attack. India has maintained that Pakistan has been providing safe havens to terrorists such as Masood Azhar. The confirmation of using UN proscribed terror organisation, Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) as an instrument of state policy by Pakistani military or political leadership is already in public domain. Pakistan’s former National Security Advisor Durrani, former army chief and then president of Pakistan General Pervez Musharraf had already admitted Pakistan’s complicity in creating disturbances in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. General Pervez Musharraf has admitted this month that Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar carried out terror attacks in India on the instructions of the Inter-services Intelligence of Pakistan. Its current foreign minister has also reaffirmed the presence of Jaish-e-Mohammed chief on its soil. Despite its public commitment in January, 2004, not to allow its soil or territory under its control for terrorism against India, Pakistan continues supporting terror attacks against India, the latest being the Pulwama terror attack that took place last month. India has been repeatedly urging Pakistan to take action against Jaish-e-Mohammed and other UN proscribed terror organisations and prevent jihadis from being trained and armed inside Pakistan.
