His comments comes after Beijing blocked India’s latest bid to have JeM chief Masood Azhar designated terrorist by the UN in the aftermath of terror strike at the Pathankot air force base.

When asked in what way Azhar fell short of being a terrorist, Liu only said: “The Council’s requirements.” Implying he did not meet them, Liu would not go into details.

“Pakistan has an important place in Chinese diplomacy…China’s intervention in that case must be seen in this context,” Gen Singh said.



Following the attack on Pathankot Air Force base in January, India had requested the UN sanctions committee in February to include Azhar in its list of terrorists. The action by the panel, popularly known as the 1267 committee after the Council’s resolution number setting it up, would have required Pakistan and other countries to freeze his assets and ban his travel.

At the committee’s meeting on April 4, all the other 14 members of the Council supported placing Azhar on the list, but China put a hold on it, which is in effect a veto.

This is the second time that China has come to the aid of Pakistani terrorists in the sanctions committee. Last June, China blocked India’s demand for taking action under the Council’s anti-terrorism resolutions against Pakistan for freeing Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, the Lashkar-e-Taiba mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai attack.

External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup had earlier said it was “incomprehensible” that while JeM was listed by the sanctions committee as far back as 2001 “for its terror activities and links to the al-Qaeda, the designation of the group’s main leader, financier and motivator has been put on a technical hold”.

Swarup said the committee’s “working methods, based on the principles of unanimity and anonymity, is leading the Committee to adopt a selective approach to combating terrorism. This does not reflect well on the determination that the international community needs to display to decisively defeat the menace of terrorism.”

China is one of the five permanent members of the United Nations with veto powers and has claimed that its decision is based on facts and rules.
