China blocks UNSC move to declare Masood Azhar “a global terrorist”, India disappointed

New Delhi /March 14 : China, for the fourth time, blocked an initiative to tag Jaish-e Mohammad chief Masood Azhar as a “global terrorist” by the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday. The move by Beijing – which considers Pakistan an “all-weather ally” – came as the Security Council was to take up a resolution on the matter, days after the February 14 Jaish attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama in which 40 soldiers died. The resolution, say sources, was backed by unprecedented number of countries going into the “double digits”. India said it was “disappointed by this outcome”.
