China’s Veto On Azhar Ineffective: India

0Shares

New Delhi—China’s continuous blocking of Pakistan-based JeM chief Masood Azhar’s designation as a “global terrorist” by the UN will not deter it from “fighting terrorism”, an MEA official said here Friday.

“I think the decision by a country to block a consensus should not be seen as an end to our counter-terrorism efforts.”

What is important is that it does not, in any way, take away our resolve to fight terrorism,” Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.

During a media briefing, he said India will continue to work with like-minded countries to “fight terrorism.”

“It will not impact our resolve to fight terror,” he said, referring to China’s decision.

China yesterday had for the fourth time blocked the bid to list Pathankot attack mastermind Azhar as a “global terrorist” by the UN, saying “there is no consensus” within the members of the sanctions committee.
