US sets up UN clash with China over bid to blacklist Jaish chief Masood Azhar

The United States on Wednesday circulated a draft resolution to the UN Security Council that would blacklist Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief Masood Azhar as a terrorist, setting up a potential clash with China over the move.

China earlier this month put on hold a request to put Masood Azhar on the UN sanctions list, over his alleged ties to al-Qaida. That request stalled in a UN sanctions committee, prompting the United States to turn directly to the Security Council with the proposed resolution blacklisting Azhar.

Jaish-e-Mohammad has claimed responsibility for the February 14 attack in Pulwama that killed 40 Indian troops and stoked tensions between India and Pakistan.

The draft resolution condemns the suicide bombing and decides that Azhar will be added to the UN Al-Qaida and Islamic State sanctions blacklist. Read More
