In June, China blocked the proposal by India and the US to list Pakistan-based terrorist Abdul Rehman Makki under the Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee.
United Nations: India, on Tuesday, expressed dissatisfaction over the United Nations (UN) Secretary General’s report for ‘not taking notice of activities of proscribed groups that have been targeting India’. Speaking at a meeting chaired by China, India said that it was “most regrettable” that genuine and evidence-based proposals to blacklist some of the world’s most notorious terrorists were being placed on hold at a global body.
Ambassador of India to UN Ruchira Kamboj said that selective filtering of inputs by the UN from member states is ‘uncalled for’. Kamboj added that such “double standards” are rendering credibility of the Council’s sanctions regime at an “all-time low.” “It is indeed puzzling that the Secretary General’s report chose not to take notice of the activities of the several proscribed groups in this region, especially those that have been repeatedly targeting India,” Kamboj said, news agency ANI quoted.
