China blocks India’s bid to declare JeM chief Masood Azhar global terrorist for fourth time

In yet another attempt to shield terrorists based in Pakistan, China has blocked India’s bid to declare Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar a global terrorist for the fourth time. This has happened despite India’s huge diplomatic pressure to ban the JeM chief, who is the mastermind behind the ghastly suicide bomb attack in Jammu and Kashmir, which left 44 CRPF jawans dead. After the February-14 Pulwama terrorist attack, the US, the UK and France had moved the United Nations (UN) to declare Masood a global terrorist on February 27. However, China has again chosen to side with its “all-weather friend” Pakistan, citing it wanted a solution (of the conflict in J&K) “acceptable to all”.
