China all set to block Masood Azhar ban again

By Vicky

China is all set to once again block a move to get Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar declared a global terrorist. The proposal by India which has the backing of the US, UK and France has been put on technical hold by China which as a permanent member of the UNSC wields a veto power.

The technical hold was extended by Beijing for another 3 months in August and is set to expire this week on Thursday. The agencies watching the development say that China is moving to introduce a full fledged block to wade of the proposal.

India has repeatedly told China not to block the proposal. India cites the various attacks that Azhar has sanctioned on Indian soil. India says that his name had cropped up in the recent investigations that were conducted in the Pathankot attack. China however continues to insist that there is not enough evidence to declare Azhar a global terrorist.
