For the first time China has publicly acknowledged Pakistan’s role in terror attacks that took place in Mumbai in 2008.
The disclosure came in the form of a documentary aired on Chinese State Television – CCTV9 – recently.
And only two days later, on June 9, Beijing’s opportunity to put on hold the listing of LeT/JuD(Jamaat-ud-Dawa) militants Hafiz Abdul Rahman Makki, Talha Saeed and Hafiz Abdul Rauf, will expire.

The UNSC-backed listing would ban all three terrorists but China has not been in support of the same and is the only permanent member against it at the behest of Pakistan.
India gave evidence against Pakistan’s involvement in the Mumbai terror attacks, which, obviously, Islamabad initially denied. Investigations called Islamabad’s lies and eventually the Pak hand was established through Ajmal Kasab’s testimony, the deposition of David Headley and a series of other events.
