China likely to block UNSC terrorist listing of JeM Chief Masood Azhar
BEIJING - Hours before the United Nations Security Council is to take up a resolution on listing Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist, China on Wednesday hinted that it may once again block the move, saying only "the solution that is acceptable to all sides" is conducive to resolve the issue.
The fate of the proposal to designate Azhar as a global terrorist by the UN Security Council will be known in less than 24 hours when the deadline to raise objections to the bid expires.
The proposal to designate Azhar under the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council was moved by France, UK and the US on February 27. by Taboola link: Sponsored Links link: . link Worst Foods For Arthritis to Stop BuyingOrganic Welcome link
