China claims positive progress made to resolve issue of listing Masood Azhar as global terrorist by UN
Updated : April 01, 2019 02:46 PM IST
China last week defended its repeated attempts to block the listing of Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Azhar as a global terrorist and refuted the US allegation that Beijing's action amounted to protecting violent Islamic groups from sanctions.
China criticised the US move for directly taking the issue of listing Azhar as global terrorists to UN Security Council after Beijing put a technical hold on the US, UK and French resolution earlier to declare him as global terrorist in the UN's 1267 committee dealing with counter terrorism issues.
