Washington : China on Wednesday blocked a resolution brought by the US and India in the United Nations Security Council against a notorious terrorist of Pakistan’s terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammed. Diplomats have given this information. India and the US wanted a global sanctions on terrorist Abdul Rauf Azhar and freezing of his assets. Such a proposal must be agreed to by all 15 members of the Security Council’s sanctions committee. But China has saved Pakistan the terrorist by putting obstacles.
Speaking to Reuters, a Chinese mission spokesman said, “We put the proposal on hold because we need more time to study the case.” The guidelines of the committee provide for withholding of proposal and many such listing proposals have been withheld by the members of the committee. Azhar was named by the US Treasury in 2010 and accused of engaging Pakistanis in terrorist activities and planning suicide attacks in India.
Supported terrorist for the second time this year
A spokesman for the US mission to the United Nations said on Wednesday that the US respects the views of other countries. The United States values cooperation with its Security Council partners to effectively prevent terrorists from exploiting the global order to commit crimes. Jaish Commander Abdul Rauf Azhar is the younger brother of notorious terrorist Masood Azhar and was involved in the hijacking of IC 814 aircraft in 1994. For the second time this year, China has banned the listing of a Pakistani terrorist in the United Nations. Earlier it had banned the listing of Abdul Rehman Makki of Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Security Council has been warned

African security expert Martin Evie gave this warning. Avi said Islamic State has increased its influence in Africa and at least 20 countries are directly experiencing the activities of the terrorist organization.
