Despite the news reports of warming of ties between China and India, the Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has defended Beijing’s repeated blockage of India’s bids at the United Nations to list Masood Azhar as a global terrorist.
Azhar is the chief of Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).
China defended the terrorist while arguing that the issue lacks consensus among the members of the UN Security Council.
Masood Azhar is accused of several deadly terrorist attacks in India.
It need be mentioned that China, being a veto-wielding permanent member of the UN Security Council, has repeatedly blocked India’s move.
This is amid the fact that US, Britain and France all back India to designate Masood Azhar a terrorist under the Al-Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council.>
