March 14, 2019: China has placed a hold and blocked the attempt to list Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar. The attempt to list him has as a "global terrorist" by the UN Security Council has failed again. 

China has shielded Masood Azhar for the fourth time after it blocked action on the JeM chief. It comes as a setback to India's bid to designate Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed's chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist. 

A diplomat at the UN told PTI that China put a "technical hold". China on Wednesday (March 13) put a technical hold on a proposal in the UN Security Council to ban him following the Pulwama terror attack.

The proposal to designate Azhar under the 1267 al-Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council was moved by France, the UK and the US on February 27, days after a suicide bomber of the Jaish-e-Mohammed killed 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama, leading to tensions between India and Pakistan.
