After China blocks Azhar’s listing, UN diplomats say other action may be pursued

By Anuj Cariappa

Washington, Mar 14: If China continues to block the designation of Masood Azhar, responsible member states may be forced to pursue other action. It should not have come to that a security diplomat quoted by PTI said.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the diplomat gave a feeling of what the other states felt after China yet again blocked the listing of the Jaish-e-Mohammad chief, Masood Azhar at the UN Security Council.

Meanwhile India said that 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.

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.
