  • France said it has always been and always will be by India’s side in the fight against terrorism

"China should not prevent the Committee from doing the job the Security Council has entrusted it to do", another security council diplomat told PTI in response to a question. "We still need more time and that is why we made a decision to put a technical hold on it", a spokesperson of the Chinese foreign ministry told a regular press briefing when asked as to what prompted Beijing to put on a technical hold the listing of Masood Azhar by the UN Security Council. The Chinese decision has disappointed India and the U.S., the UK, France and Germany that had backed the proposal. India's attempts to impose sanctions against the Pakistan-based terrorist came after a suicide attack allegedly orchestrated by the JeM in Kashmir's Pulwama district killed nearly 50 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel.

"It added that India will continue to pursue all available avenues to ensure that terrorist leaders who are involved in heinous attacks on Indians are brought to justice", he added.

According to sources, India said it was "disappointed by this outcome" after China's move as it considers Pakistan its "all-time ally".

Competitors for supremacy in the region, China and India have long-standing territorial disputes but Modi and Xi have tried to patch up ties, banking on their personal chemistry to smooth over differences. In 2009, India under the UPA government was the lone proposer.

"France has always been and always will be by India's side in the fight against terrorism", the statement said.

In the highly surcharged pre-election scenario in India, the Opposition instantly pointed out the Modi government's "diplomatic disaster" with Congress party leader Mr Rahul Gandhi tweeting "Swing with Xi in Gujarat, Hug Xi in Delhi, Bow to Xi in China".

"Except for China, all other UNSC members had supported the proposal to list Azhar, who lives in Pakistan and operates his organisation from there, as a global terrorist". Except for China, which wields veto power in the Security Council, all other UNSC members were on board with the move before the al-Qaida (1267) Sanctions Committee. "These days you feel very happy seeing your name in Pakistan (media) headlines", Prasad said. "NoMo's China Diplomacy: 1". Hug Xi in Delhi. 3.

Meanwhile, India has expressed "disappointment" over China's move to rally behind those are spreading terror activities in India.

Reports have asked the spokesperson about the Beijing stand on Kashmir and he has reiterated what he has said earlier: "This is an issue that is left over between India and Pakistan".

"Our views on Jaish-e-Mohammad and its founder are well known".

Predictably, China stepped in again to put a spoke into India's Jaish wheel at the United Nations as it did repeatedly in the past.
