UN Declares Pakistan-Based JeM Chief Masood Azhar a Global Terrorist

Masood Azhar

United Nations diplomats said the request was again submitted to the committee and China had not opposed the move to blacklist Azhar.

Describing the United Nations designating JeM chief Masood Azhar a global terrorist as a great diplomatic victory for India, the BJP on Thursday said opposition parties are reluctant to celebrate the achievement because they feel they may have to pay political price for it.

"These proposals were aimed at maligning Pakistan and the legitimate struggle of the people of Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmiri for the realisation of their right to self-determination and were thus rejected by Pakistan, which has always maintained that resolution of any listing issue should be by consensus, through objective dialogue and consultations, within the 1267 Committee framework and most importantly without politicization", he asserted. On this China's foreign minister said that I can only say that the issue will be resolved with an appropriate way. "After careful study of the revised materials and taking into consideration the opinions of relevant parties concerned, China does not have objection to the listing proposal".

"If you go through the press statement by FATF, one of the action plans specifically mentions that Pakistan has to demonstrate effective implementation of targeted financial sanctions (supported by a comprehensive legal obligation) against all 1267 and 1373 designated terrorists and those acting for or on their behalf", he said.

Beijing had staunchly opposed the Azhar listing to be taken directly to the powerful United Nations body as it would have had to publicly explain its stand on its reservations to list Azhar, whose group JeM has already been designated as a terror outfit by the United Nations, before exercising its veto.

Following the Indian Parliament attack, the US State Department added JeM to its foreign terrorist organisation (FTO) list.

JeM itself has been on the UN's "terrorist" list since 2001. "We will continue to provide diplomatic, political and moral support to our Kashmiri brethren", he pledged.

Giving the background, the spokesman added that the UNSC 1267 Sanctions Committee listing is governed by clear rules and is based on strict technical criteria. In 2016 again, India moved the proposal with the P3 - the United States, the United Kingdom and France - in the UN's 1267 Sanctions Committee to ban Azhar, also the mastermind of the attack on the Pathankot airbase in January 2016. "All decisions of the Committee are taken through consensus".

India will ask the global money laundering and terror finance watchdog to put Pakistan on a blacklist of countries that fail to meet worldwide standards in stopping financial crime, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said on Thursday.

It is important to note that Beijing's decision to lift the technical hold came just over a week after Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale met China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi in China. "Many members have placed technical holds on various listing proposals", he said.
