Will utilise 'all available resources' to blacklist Masood Azhar: US


BEIJING: The US on Tuesday stated it's going to “utilise all to be had sources” to ensure the list of Jaish-e-Muhammed founder Masood Azhar as a "global terrorist" by the UN.

The US had on March 27 circulated a draft solution to the robust 15-nation Council to blacklist Azhar and subject him to a go back and forth ban, an belongings freeze and an palms embargo. The transfer got here after China put a dangle on a French proposal to record Azhar under the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the Council.


Reiterating its firm stand at the factor, the US State Department has reportedly stated it's going to ensure that the Pakistan-based terrorist is held responsible by the world group.

Masood Azhar-led JeM had claimed accountability for the deadly terror attack in Pulwama, which left 40 CRPF workforce martyred.

Responding to the State Department's remarks, China on Wednesday stated that Washington's transfer is complicating the problem and now not conducive to peace and stability in South Asia.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a media briefing that Beijing is adopting constructive and affordable stand at the factor to get to the bottom of it properly.

Earlier, China had criticised the US for immediately taking the Masood Azhar factor to the UN Security Council. It claimed that "positive progress" has been made to get to the bottom of the vexed factor and accused the US of scuttling its efforts.


China has so far blocked the transfer to designate Azhar as a 'global terrorist' four times lately.


On Wednesday, the Chinese foreign ministry spokesman stated overwhelming majority of the U.S. individuals believe that efforts should be made under the 1267 Sanctions Committee to resolve this designation thru discussion and consultation as an alternative of pushing the draft solution at the U.S..


India handed over a file to Pakistan on February 27 with specific main points of Pakistan-based terror workforce JeM's complicity in the Pulwama attack and the presence of Jaish terror camps and its management in Pakistan.


Pakistan has already stated that it has now not discovered any link between the JeM and the Pulwama terror attack and demanded more information/evidence from India.
