China blocks Indian bid in UN against Pakistan

China has again rescued Pakistan at the international forum against the Indian game plan with the backing of its western allies.

China has extended by three months its technical hold on the US, France and UK- backed proposal to list JeM chief Masood Azhar as a designated terrorist by the UN, reported Times of India. 

China had in February this year blocked the US move to designate Azhar as a global terrorist at UN.

The deadline for China to take action on its technical hold was till August 2.

If China would not have extended the technical hold, Azhar would have automatically been designated under the UN as a terrorist. 

According to Indian media that just before the deadline lapsed, China once again sought a three-month extension until November 2 on its technical hold on the proposal.
