China on Tuesday blocked a proposal by the United States (US) to designate Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) chief Masood Azhar a global terrorist, Times of India reported.

The US, supported by the United Kingdom and France, moved a proposal at the United Nations Security Council Sanctions Committee to blacklist the JeM chief in what is seen as a show of solidarity with India.

India has accused JeM and its leader of masterminding several attacks, including the assault on the Pathankot air base in Jan 2016, and has been trying to get Azhar added to the list following the attack. JeM has already been blacklisted by the 15-nation Security Council, but not Azhar.

The US proposal finalised after 'consultations' between Washington and New Delhi stated that JeM is a designated terror outfit, so its leaders cannot go scot-free, according to sources cited by ToI.

China opposed the move by putting a hold on the proposal, a source said, just before the expiry of the 10-day deadline for action on the proposal.

The hold can remain in place for six months and may be extended by three months. It can be converted into a block during this time period, effectively dismissing the proposal.

India's Ministry of External Affairs said it had been informed of the development. "The matter has been taken up with the Chinese government."

India had requested that Azhar be added to the list in Feb 2016 and had received strong backing from all other members of the council. But China, which put a hold on the move in April, and extended the hold in October, had blocked the proposal in December.

If Azhar is blacklisted by the Security Council, he will face a global travel ban and asset freeze.

Last time I checked he escaped prison after an Indian Flight was hijacked!! What else does it require to be a designated terrorist ??? Hmmm

Maverik Feb 07, 2017 06:40pm

Can we know the nature of this technical hold? I'm no fan of Azhar but the abundance of rhetoric and lack of facts is quite striking. Can a person be banned without due process and proof of involvement? Is only accusation enough to put someone on the sanctions list?

Harmony-1© Feb 07, 2017 06:42pm

Serves Modi right!

Someone who indulges in terror activities as state-policy with terror funding and through RAW operatives has no moral basis, and no need for such 'show of solidarity with India'.

Feroz Feb 07, 2017 06:42pm

Slowly Chinese stand on terrorism is being exposed to the world.

Rocky Feb 07, 2017 06:40pm

It's good for India..

SECULAR Feb 07, 2017 06:44pm

how many countries supported it and how many opposed it.

Senman Feb 07, 2017 06:45pm

No hope of ban until China in security council

Pure Ind Feb 07, 2017 06:40pm

@Harmony-1© & you still needs proofs when accused of supporting Terror units??

I wonder why??

Let me think... protection of CPEC corridor or strategic partners in something else?

N.S Feb 07, 2017 06:49pm

Earlier United States and EU has banned Modi for travelling to their countries after the Gujarat massacre...lasted more than 10 years.

What happened to that ban...the crime committed cannot vanish in thin air.

At the same time Masood Azhar should be treated like H.Saeed as of now, no incumbency factor needed.

Candyman Feb 07, 2017 06:54pm

@Harmony-1© He was exchanged in return of hostages from a plane hijacked by terrorists and taken to Kandahar. You still need proof? Like seriously?

Alzamir Feb 07, 2017 06:53pm

@Maverik are you serious or just joking ? dont you know this guy escaped from Indian jail via a plane 'Hijacked' by 'Terrorists'.

China will vacate UNSC permanent seat and India will occupy it, what a hopeless dream.

thats good

TBH Feb 07, 2017 07:05pm

@Harmony-1© it indeed serves India well as long as Azhar is in limelight of Sanctions. This will only create more problems for Pakistan as Azhar was involved in flight hijacking

TBH Feb 07, 2017 07:06pm

@Maverik lack of facts? He was hijacker of a flight. This needs no proof.

Pure Ind Feb 07, 2017 07:13pm

@Mohammad S. Khalid buddy you are missing the plot, its not about UNSC seat its about openly protecting a person who got a plane hijacked?? Do you honestly feel its correct ??

TBH Feb 07, 2017 07:15pm

This only shows where India stands in diplomacy and support it receives. 14 nations have voted in favour and it was just China that opposed it.

Ashwin Feb 07, 2017 07:24pm

Why is China isolating herself ? By doing this they will uselessly become enemy in the world's eye.

Mohammad S. Khalid Feb 07, 2017 07:22pm

A friend in need is friend indeed. Thank you China once again.

Maxx Feb 07, 2017 07:27pm

China did it to make Pakistan happy, and let India scorn. United States moved this proposal on India insistence, to make India happy...

...knowing very well that it was blocked two times earlier by China when proposed by India.

So US did it's part, China did it part and lets's move on. US is not concerned about issues between India-Pak, Kashmir or terrorism related, yes she is concerned about any group directly or indirectly involved with terror in the US.

Harmony-1© Feb 07, 2017 07:31pm

@Candyman - "You still need proof? Like seriously?"

No, I don't. I wouldn't care less about characters like him.

My point was Modi's own nefarious state-sponsored activities in Pakistan. He has no moral high ground!!! My point was clear enough, so don't put a spin in it!

ghaznavi Feb 07, 2017 07:47pm

@Pure Ind "Last time I checked he escaped prison after an Indian Flight was hijacked!! " Correction: India released him in the exchange. As for him being a terrorist , India should bring the proofs and not just allegations. Pakistan has a judicial system, India should exhaust this avenue before running to it's friends for intervention. BTWby ignoring the Human right violations and focusing on Indian complains these "civilized nations" have lost the moral ground to pressurize the UN for this action. 1151 peaceful demonstrators lost their sight due to pallets fired by these modern day Nazis.

Mustafa R. Feb 07, 2017 07:46pm

@Feroz;

To the contrary, India's and the West's hypocricy on terrorism is being exposed to the civilized world. Kill a few people and you are a terrorist, kill a few thousand and you are government, kill a few hundred thousand and you are a superpower wannabe, kill a few million and you are a superpower.

Harmony-1© Feb 07, 2017 07:48pm

@Aditya Sharma - Yes this megalomaniac is definitely "most welcome, powerful and respected leader" with his like it or not bear hugs, knuckle cracking hand shakes, pushing other aside to get into picture frames!

There is more to it than meets the eye, not that clear. Especially after Pakistan going after Hafiz Saeed and all terrorist groups.

You may blame Modi but in reality no state is innocent as all of their hands are blood stained. The covert operations are nothing new and they weren't invented after Modi became PM!

Mustafa R. Feb 07, 2017 07:58pm

@Topgun;

'lets see till when it can take this stand...'

You are wrongly assuming that there is an expiry date on China's stand. China can maintain this stand longer than India can maintain it's false accusations and the West can maintain selective enforcement of the law. Mr. Trump is finding out the UN is not just a building like the Trump Tower where he can fire an employee for not shining his boots good enough.

Harmony-1© Feb 07, 2017 08:01pm

@TBH - "The covert operations are nothing new and they weren't invented after Modi became PM!"

Should that continue then or should one have dialogue for peace???

Hameed Feb 07, 2017 08:01pm

then pakistan wants the world community to acknowledge their country's sacrifices in the war against terrorism. Its just a big scam. They still eliminate terrorists based on their own priorities. No one will take you seriously pakistan. There is a reason why there is no resolution on kashmir till now. Its because of acts like these where you show the world your true colours by running to china whenever something constructive is about to happen at the UN.

TBH Feb 07, 2017 08:13pm

@Harmony-1© "Should that continue then or should one have dialogue for peace???"

The answer is obvious. From India perspective unless Pakistan rein in militant groups there will be no talks. It's not that I support this but that's the reality. Musharaff was able to get BJP government on board

Frank Feb 07, 2017 08:10pm

This is an issue to be mutually resolved between India and Pakistan, why should western powers get involved under garb of UNSC. If UNSC want to stay involved then first resolve bigger and older issues like Kashmir which has been in a limbo for over 65 years even with a clear UN resolutions behind it

Raja Farhat Abbas Feb 07, 2017 08:08pm

@Frank;

US has to makeup it's mind if they want to be involved in Kashmir dispute or not. In today's multipolar world even US is not strong enough to have their cake and eat it too. You cannot get involved only when India endsup on the shorter end of the stick.

N_Saq Feb 07, 2017 08:21pm

Kudos to China for standing with Pak but seriously how long do you think China will keep doing this and keep antagonizing the international community. China will not stand against the whole world to protect Pak for people like Azhar Mehmood.

C'mon Pak it is time to put your house in order. How can you be proud with entities like Hafiz Saeed, Azhar Mehmood, TTP, Hakani's etc etc freely roaming around the country? This is 21st century and there is no place for entities like TTP, Jud, JeL, LT, Hakani etc etc. Pak is walking a fine line and with these entities within its folds, Pak is one step away from being declared a terrorists State. Why would you do that and how can you be happy/proud of it?

Raja Farhat Abbas Feb 07, 2017 08:18pm

@Hameed ...You have your opinion but you certainly do not have the facts,Chinese are a wise people and they know what they are doing.

@TBH;

'From India perspective unless Pakistan rein in militant groups there will be no talks.'

From anybody's perspective there should be no talks, 70 years of talks have have produced nothing but 300000 dead Kashmiris and thousands of blind Kashmiri children.

MUHAMMAD Feb 07, 2017 08:24pm

Enough is enough. Modi should do a surgical strike on china and isolate it :p

How could China possible lose it's seat on the UN Security Council? We can't blame China or Russia for not cooperating with the United States when Washington Republicans and military suppliers want to keep the Cold War going forever. Russia and China are playing the same game. The more insecure the world is the more weapons they can sell.

SK Feb 07, 2017 08:30pm

China is never matured enough to lead the world as super power. In this case she's the only country to oppose the ban. It's time for chinese policy makers to sort out difference with what world thinks.

MUHAMMAD Feb 07, 2017 08:24pm

Why is China in love with Masood azhar so much? PS shouldnt this be an intenral matter of india and pakistan? and if these countries can get involved in this then why dont they get involved in the root cause for all the problems between india and paksitan ie kashmir and get that thing resolved once and for all? Kashmir out of the way then there will be no reason for any animosity between the two countries. Things will automatically improve

Mohamed Feb 07, 2017 08:34pm

I feel that India should get the west and even china involved in the kashmir dispute and get the LOC declared as the int'l border between the two nations. I am sure even china would support it as they have their stakes in the pak part of kashmir and once this thing gets resolved then automatically tempers will cool down and dematerialization will take place in that area. India has good relations with GCC countries and if they get them on board then pakistan will have to comply and even the religious parties will not say no to the saudis. I dont know if they though abt it but that appears to be the best solution to all this unending perpetual south asian soap opera.

@Feroz, Ya you are right. but all other countries are being exposed as well. On one had Pakistan is being accused of supporting Afghan taliban but at the same time World powers are OK with a Taliban office in Qatar! They all have their favorite Taliban and favorite terror groups. India is openly supporting a few very small groups of what they call "Freedom Fighter" or Pakistan call them Terrorist groups. Many in Pakistan call Azhar Masood of Dash a Freedom Fighter. Now you pick your own hero among these murderers,kidnappers and real Terrorist. I hate them all who kill innocent people.

China will eventually pay the consequences of such continued misuse of its position in the UN Security Council. China may be a rising power but it should not forget that it is still way behind USA and a deeper US-India-Japan partnership can wreck its power play any day, economically or militarily. On top of it, the US now warming up to Russia is not a geo-political reality in China's favor. China should calibrate its responses to international issues of vital importance such as global terrorism, with care and responsibility.

When governments start using these so called international laws (read: internationally agreed upon set of regulations) for their own personal agendas and political maneuvering; then these so called 'laws' lose both; their integrity and respect.

Today what we have is states hell bent on designating individuals as criminals globally (if there is such a thing as a global criminal), where as the clear and obvious crimes committed by the states themselves go unchallenged and with no consequences for their perpetrators (state's primers). Blockade of Yemen by SA, bombing of Libya by USA, harassment of Kashmiris by India and ethnic cleansing and virtual slavery of Palestinians by Israel are the current top crimes being committed by the states.

Logic, ethics and pure sense of justice would demand that the excesses of the powerful be neutralized first before turning one's attention to the lone smaller individual guy.

Until then nobody would respect any of these so called world-laws.

@Wasim "@SECULAR all the countries supported wholeheartedly, except China. 14:1 in figures. Because China is the only other country that takes p"principled Stand" just like Pakistan. Kulbhusan should be put on the list based on the dossier provided by Pakistan.

@Prakash - An agenda for a meeting is altogether different from preconditions! Ever thought of that?

It needs 2 hands to clap. The broader point I am trying to make is both nations have to create environment and accept or at least assess pre conditions of others to move forward. Obviously from India the expectation is for Pakistan to not keep militant groups as a hedge.

If China continue to block designated UN named terrorists, it will create an impression in the world about the sincerity of China in fighting terrorism.

@TBH - The dialogue is meant to resolve the outstanding mutual issues and prevent the acts of state/non-state actors; the remedies come through talks not through hypocritical childish ‘I’m not talking to you’ attitude.
