China explains delay on United Nations terrorist blacklist bid as 'technical hold'

"China conducts thorough and in-depth assessment of these applications and we still need more time, so that is why we put forward the technical hold", he said.

France sanctioned Masood Azhar at the national level by freezing his assets, the MEA said, days after China blocked a move to designate him as a global terrorist by the United Nations. But US and European officials say they are waiting to see if the crackdown is effective or if the militants' infrastructure will spring back to life once worldwide pressure on Islamabad subsides.

"A deadly attack took place in Pulwama on February 14, 2019, claiming over 40 victims from the Indian police forces".

Reacting to China's move a high level U.S. diplomat told the PTI, "If China continues to block this designation, responsible member states may be forced to pursue other actions at the Security Council".

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj Friday said the leaders who term China's blocking of banning JeM chief Masood Azhar at the United Nations a "diplomatic failure" must see that India was alone when the move was first made in 2009 under UPA rule, while it has worldwide support in 2019.

"The time has come when China should suffer due to its proximity with Pakistan", CAIT said in a statement. The director took to Twitter, suggesting to not release Indian films in China.

To Modi or the NDA government's credit, nearly all major countries, including permanent members of the Security Council, favoured India's position and wanted Azhar to be declared a global terrorist.

While most countries in the world have been waging war against terror, Pakistan and China have been protecting terror groups, even though they claim to be victims of terrorism. "NoMo's China Diplomacy: 1". Hug Xi in Delhi 3. China's move has put a technical hold on India's bid that could last up to nine months.

"It's very easy to understand why China blocked resolution against Masood Azhar in UNSC?".

Jaish-e-Mohammad literally means the Army of Mohammad. "Bow to Xi in China", he said in the same tweet, recalling the Chinese leader's three-day visit to India in 2014 during which the two leaders sat on a swing in Ahmedabad at the Sabarmati riverfront.

Chinese products - from mobile phones made by companies such as Xiaomi Inc to toys - are ubiquitous in India and trade between the countries grew to almost $90 billion in the year ending March 2018. India accuses Pakistan of harbouring terrorists with the aim of disrupting peace in the contested region an allegation which Pakistan denies.

In the highly surcharged pre-election scenario in India, the Opposition instantly pointed out the Modi government's "diplomatic disaster" with Congress party leader Mr Rahul Gandhi tweeting "Swing with Xi in Gujarat, Hug Xi in Delhi, Bow to Xi in China".
