MEA India disappointed not being able to get JeM leader declared as global terrorist by the UN Security Council

China has for the fourth time blocked (put a technical hold) a proposal at the United Nations to designate Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist. Standing solidly behind Pakistan, China ignored international efforts to clamp down on cross-border terrorism. 

This is a major setback to Indian efforts to proscribe the Pulwama mastermind under the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council (UNSC) was not able to come to a decision on the proposal for listing Mohammed Masood Azhar Alvi under the UN Sanctions regime

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.

Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said: “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.”
