Abide the long stretched issue of eliminating terrorism and naming Azhar as a global terrorist, the Chinese Ambassador to India Luo Zhaohui while speaking on the issue said that this matter will be resolved and that this is only a technical hold which means there is time for continued consultations. “It will be resolved, believe me”, he said.
This is the fourth consecutive time that China in the wake of blacklisting the JeM chief has taken no action and opposed the UNSC to proceed, supporting its bosom friend, Pakistan. India expressed its disappointment over China’s move and meanwhile marked to stay optimistic saying, “This is a hold and not a block. India is optimistic”.
Further addressing the media Luo Zhaohui said, “We understand India’s concerns and are optimistic that this matter will be resolved”. “After Wuhan summit last year the two way cooperation is on the right track, on fast track. We’re satisfied with this cooperation, optimistic about the future,” he added.
When asked about the reason for blocking the move initiated by the US, France and UK, foreign ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said China always carries out thorough and in-depth investigation of the applications to the UN sanctions committee.
Earlier on Thursday, China moved blocking the latest international step to designate Azhar as a global terrorist at the UNSC, allowing a major bilateral irritant with India to fester. This prompted some permanent members of the UN Security Council to say that they would pursue other actions to counter China’s continued opposition to designating Masood Azhar.
