China refuses to list JeM head Masood Azhar in UN terrorist list, days after Pulwama attack

DHARAMSHALA, Feb. 20: Less than a week after the deadly Pulwama attack in the restive Jammu and Kashmir, China said it will continue to hold its stance to reject India’s bid to list Pakistani terrorist leader Maulana Masood Azhar in the United Nations global terrorist list.

Azhar is the leader of the Jaish-e-Mohammad terror outfit that claimed responsibility of the Pulwama attack, which killed 40 soldiers of the Central Reserved Police Force. Subsequently, India has appealed the international community to band together in designating terrorist leaders including Azhar and terror outfits in Pakistan who are allegedly given safe haven there.

Responding to questions on the same issue, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang told a media briefing, "As for the issue of listing, I could tell you that the 1267 Committee of Security Council has a clear stipulation on the listing and procedure of the terrorist organisations. JeM has been included in the Security Council terrorism sanctions list. China will continue to handle the relevant sanctions issue in a constructive and responsible manner."

In contrast, France has said it will move a resolution at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to designate Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist.

Indian geostrategist and security expert Brahma Chellaney wrote, “China’s culpability in the Pulwama massacre of Indian jawans is unmistakable. In keeping with its master plan, Beijing brazenly shields Pakistan’s export of terrorism, including blocking UN action against Pakistan-based terrorists like Masood Azhar.”

Congress MP and author Shashi Tharoor tweeted, “It's sobering that Pulwama has been claimed by Jaish-e-Mohammad, a group that enjoys China's protection at the UN Security Council's Sanctions Committee. What about the 'Wuhan spirit' Beijing & Modi have been touting? In that spirit can they rein terror in by China sanctioning JeM?”

Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) Chief Masood Azhar is accused of masterminding the Pathankot IAF base attack as well as the 2008 Mumbai attacks. The proposal by India to put him on the global terror list of the Sanctions Committee has been going on for almost a decade now with China repeatedly blocking that bid.
