China blocks proposal to brand Masood Azhar as global terrorist

Masood Azhar who is in Pakistan is wanted in India for terror strikes including the suicide bombing in Kashmir

India was perturbed about whether China would let the process conclude or place a "technical hold" on it-as it has done several times in the past.

Three UNSC permanent members, the U.S., the United Kingdom and France have once again proposed to designate JeM chief as a global terrorist.

China's move on Azhar also triggered a storm of anti-Chinese sentiment on Twitter with #BoycottChinaProduct attracting hundreds of tweets.

In a statement, the Indian foreign ministry said it "was disappointed by the outcome", adding it would continue to pursue all avenues to make sure "terrorist leaders who are involved in heinous attacks on Indian citizens are brought to justice". "This is the fourth time now".

But China placed a "technical hold" on the proposal, saying it needed more time to consider, using the same stalling tactic it has used in the past.

The second security council diplomat also slammed Pakistan for depending on China to protect terrorist groups and leaders that operate from its soil.

The Council's sanctions committee on the Islamic State and al-Qaeda and linked terrorist groups - known as 1267 committee after Council resolution's number - needs a consensus for its decisions.

The most recent application, for which India had, to its credit, secured the support of three of the permanent members of the UNSC - the US, UK and France - as co-sponsors, is not yet entirely killed. "If Imran Khan (Pakistan prime minister) is so generous and a statesman, he should give us Masood Azhar", she said. Pakistan's government denies that Jaish-e-Muhammed is active in Pakistan.

The restaurant holds a five-star Yelp rating, with customers praising the donuts, the kolaches, and the warmth of the owners. Saturday, a son tweeted about his father's new donut shop and how his dad was very sad that no one was coming to buy donuts.

Earlier in the day, China had signalled that it was not yet prepared to step aside and allow the UNSC to list terror the JeM founder as an global terrorist.

Masood Azhar set up JeM after being released by India in 1999.

The Chinese mission to the United Nations had told reporters it was attempting to uphold a "responsible attitude" and seeking to deal "with this issue with relevant parties via thorough consultation", news agency AFP reported.

The State Department referred to this statement on Wednesday when asked about the latest developments in NY.

"Taking a cue from history, best way to defeat China is #BoycottChinese and strong action from govt on trade front", Mahajan said on Twitter, posting an image of a newspaper ad from 1921 inviting people to burn foreign-made clothes as part of a Gandhi-led protest against British colonial rule.

Congressman Brad Sherman described the Chinese move as unacceptable.

China on Wednesday vetoed a resolution tabled by United States, Britain and France to add Jaish-e-Mohammad leader Maulana Masood Azhar on United Nations's blacklist, ARY News reported. This is unacceptable, he said.
