Congress slams China for blocking Azhar’s listing as global terrorist
New Delhi, March 14 (IANS) Congress on Wednesday said that China blocking designation of Masood Azhar as a global terrorist was a sad day in the global fight against terrorism and slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his foreign policy.
Party’s communications incharge Randeep Singh Surjewala said that China blocking JeM chief Masood Azhar’s designation as global terrorist reaffirms its position of being an inseparable ally of terrorism’s breeding ground-Pakistan.
"A sad day in the global fight against terrorism! China blocking Masood Azhar’s designation as global terrorist reaffirms Chinese position of being an inseparable ally of terrorism’s breeding ground-Pakistan Sadly, Modiji’s foreign policy has been a series of diplomatic disasters," he said in a tweet.
China kept chief Masood Azhar, the chief of the terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), under its protective wings, vetoing a fourth attempt to declare him a global terrorist and sanction him.
JeM has claimed responsibility for Pulwama attack.
