NEW YORK – Trump-administration had thwarted Pakistan’s endeavour aimed at slapping sanctions on notorious terrorist and chief of banned Jamaat-ul-Ahrar (JuA) Omar Khalid Khorosani, a terrorist outfit involved in myriad acts of terrorism across Pakistan.

Pakistan had suggested to impose sanctions on Omar Khalid Khorosani under section-1267 of United Nations (UN). The resolution tabled by Pakistan was rejected by Trump-led U.S. administration.

Sources privy to foreign ministry said that Pakistan had tabled first such motion on 6th of July, 2017 which got rejected on 4th of May, 2018. However, Pakistan will reinitiate its effort aiming at slapping sanctions on Khorosani.

Diplomatic staffers—stationed in UN—have been left flabbergasted by Trump-administration’s dubious role in WoT.

It is worth here to mention that Jamaat-ul-Ahrar has been declared as a terrorist outfit by United Nations whereas the lethal outfit has claimed responsibility of numerous terrorists attack in Pakistan.
