New Delhi, Mar 14: India said that it was disappointed with the outcome on the ban on Jaish-e-Mohammad chief, Maulana Masood Azhar being blocked. China for the fourth time blocked a move by three permanent members of the UN Security Council to declare Azhar as a global terrorist.

Thoroughly disappointed says India after China blocks Masood Azhar ban

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 Ministry for External Affairs said.

Read the full statement by MEA:

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.

In the Chinese block on Masood Azhar, there is more than what meets the eye

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.

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.
