New Delhi: China has blocked India, the US and other nations’ bid for the fouth time to list Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief and Pathankot terror attack mastermind Masood Azhar as a global terrorist by the UN following which a “disappointed” India accused China of double-standards and of undermining the global fight against terrorism for “short-sighted narrow objectives”. 

China blocked the move at the UN saying “there is no consensus” within the members of the sanctions committee”. China was the only country opposing the designation of Azhar as a terrorist.

 

With the technical hold being used twice earlier and the proposal now being finally blocked, a new resolution will have to be moved before but it may be an exercise in futility as China seems intent on sending a message to India.
