'Some countries...': S Jaishankar criticizes China for blocking UN terror list

S Jaishankar said that the UN terrorist list is made because they are a threat to the whole world.

New Delhi:

In a veiled dig at China, Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar said on Wednesday that the United Nations Security Council list of terrorists was made because they are a threat to the entire international community, but some countries block these lists “in danger of their own interests and their own reputation”. “

Mr. Jaishankar made the comments at a press conference following his talks with French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna. Responding to a question about blocking UN Security Council proposals to designate Pakistan-based terrorists, Jaishankar said the list is made because terrorists are a threat to the entire international community.

“Regarding the list where India and France have cooperated for many years, I think the terrorist list was made because terrorists are a threat to the entire international community,” he said.

“So it’s not something that countries necessarily do in pursuit of a limited national agenda. If someone blocks listing, particularly in cases where the merits of moving forward are very apparent, I think they do so frankly at risk.” for their own interests and their own interests”. reputation,” she said.

This comes against the backdrop of China blocking a move at the UNSC last month to designate Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) deputy chief Abdul Rauf Azhar as a global terrorist.

China has technically suspended the joint India-US proposal to appoint JeM’s leader, who is the younger brother of team boss Masood Azhar. The other 14 member states of the highest UN body supported the proposal.

The Chinese action came less than a month after Beijing blocked a similar joint proposal by India and the US to blacklist Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Tayyiba deputy leader Abdul Rehman Makki. Makki has been involved in fundraising, recruiting and radicalizing youth to resort to violence and planning attacks in India, including the Mumbai (2008) terrorist attacks.

India’s Ambassador to the UN, Ruchira Kamboj, on threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts, said, “It is highly regrettable that genuine and evidence-based list proposals are put forward concerning some of the terrorists most notorious in the world. on hold. The double standards and continued politicization have brought the credibility of the Sanctions Regime to its lowest point.”

Ruchira Kamboj has said that the practice of withholding and blocking requests for terrorist lists without giving any justification must end.
