After China’s Masood Azhar block, UNSC vote under consideration


Key United Nations Security Council (UNSC) members, including the US, may bring a resolution asking for a UNSC vote to designate Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist. This possible move comes after China,  for the fourth time, blocked the resolution on Azhar under the 1267 Sanctions Committee list.

A UNSC vote will not have the teeth of a resolution under the 1267 Sanctions Committee, which would have resulted in a travel ban on Azhar and a freezing of his assets.  But, senior officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said a UNSC vote designating the JeM chief a terrorist will have a “significant naming and shaming effect”.

However, China, as a permanent member of UNSC, can veto such a proposal as well.   Read More
