India has unprecedented global support to list Azhar under UN Sanctions Committee: Swaraj

India has secured unprecedented support from the international community for listing Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed’s (JeM) chief Masood Azhar under the UN Sanctions Committee, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj stated on Friday.

Swaraj also gave a strong rebuttal to those who labelled Azhar’s listing under the UN Sanctions Committee as a “diplomatic failure”.

“I have shared…facts with you so that leaders who describe this as our diplomatic failure may see for themselves that in 2009, India was alone. In 2019, India has worldwide support,” she tweeted.

“In 2009, India under the UPA Government was the lone proposer. In 2016, India’s proposal was co-sponsored by USA, France and UK. In 2017, USA, UK and France moved the proposal,” Swaraj tweeted. Read More
