Taking a dig at Pakistan, union housing and urban affairs Hardeep Singh Puri on Thursday said the country's position as a global hub of terrorism stands out it failed to take action against Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar.

On China blocking UN's effort to blacklist Azhar, Puri said, "In a 15 member council, with five permanent members and 10 elected members, the support that we have received both within the council and outside is qualitatively different. I think the council is reaching a point where it needs to seriously introspect whether the political position expressed through a technical hold by one permanent member would be allowed to undermine the entire sanctions committee work of the Security Council."

The Prime Minister has made it very clear that if terrorism persists from Pakistani soil, we will go and hit the entities at the point from which they started, Puri said.
