China claims Masood Azhar issue at UNSC headed for settlement
Updated : April 17, 2019 06:57 PM IST
After the Pulwama attack, a fresh proposal to designate Azhar under the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council was moved by France, the US and the UK.
However, China, a close ally of Pakistan, blocked the bid by putting a "technical hold" on the proposal.
Following this, the US backed by the UK and France moved directly to UN Security Council (UNSC) to blacklist Azhar.
