The United Nations‘ 1267 sanctions committee has on Wednesday designated Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist, after China, reportedly, removed its objection to Azhar’s listing.

According to Dawn news reports, in a press release, the UN committee on al-Qaeda and the Islamic State announced the listing of Azhar over his outfit’s connection to al-Qaeda.

India has been long seeking this development since 2016, but the latest effort came post-Pulwama terror attack on February 14 in Jammu and Kashmir, that claimed the lives of 44 CRPF personnel. The suicide bombing was claimed by Pakistan backed and based JeM chief Azhar.

India passed a resolution regarding Azhar’s listing, which was backed by the UN security council (UNSC) permanent members, the United Staes, France, and the United Kingdom. But, China opposed the resolution by apply technical hold.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang stated Beijing had removed its objection over the resolution after the proposal was “revised”.

Pakistan foreign office (FO) spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal confirmed “Pakistan will immediately enforce the sanctions” imposed on Azhar “as it always does with UN” cases.

“This entails a ban on foreign travel, assets freeze and arms embargo,” the FO spokesperson said, adding: “Pakistan maintains that terrorism is a menace to the world, including the Indian state-sponsored terrorism against innocent Kashmiris in IOK.”

Faisal said the UNSC sanction committee listing is governed by rules and its decisions were taken through consensus. He said it would be “false and baseless” over Indian media presenting the development as a “victory for India and validation of its stance”.
