#BoycottChineseProducts trend on Twitter after China blocks Azhar's listing

China vetoes resolution in UNSC seeking ban on JeM chief Maulana Masood Azhar

China on Wednesday vetoed a resolution tabled by United States, Britain and France to add Jaish-e-Mohammad leader Maulana Masood Azhar on United Nations's blacklist, ARY News reported.

The Pakistan-based terrorist group claimed responsibility for the February 14 suicide vehicle bombing in Indian-administered Kashmir that killed 40 members of its security forces, bringing the volatile nations to the brink of a full-blown war.

Defending Beijing's technical hold, the Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson said, "China conducts a thorough and in-depth assessment of these applications and we still need more time, so that is why we put forward the technical hold".

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang expressed China's stance at a daily press briefing when commenting on Beijing's decision to delay a bid at the United Nations to blacklist militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed's (JeM) leader as a terrorist. "Bow to Xi in China", Gandhi said in Twitter.

"France has chose to sanction Masood Azhar at the national level by freezing his assets in application of the Monetary and Financial Code". China has been systematically providing diplomatic support, economic investment and arms to Pakistan. However, the blocking of Azhar's designation as a global terrorist by China has just proven Imran Khan wrong, as without a strong appeal from Pakistan, China would not have gone against the rest of the world to protect Masood Azhar.

India on February 26 claimed staging an air raid on a camp inside Pakistan that it said belonged to JeM.

China's block of the man New Delhi considers the "mastermind" of high profile terror attacks in India, has become a festering irritant in its ties with its giant neighbor.

Many Twitteratis outpoured their anger against China for not declaring Masood Azhar as global terrorists and as a mark to show patriotism people started this trend.

The statement reiterated French support to India's fight against terrorism.

"Pt. Nehru's infamous letter. dated August 2, 1955, states Informally, suggestions have been made by the U.S. that China should be taken into the United Nations but not in the Security Council, and that India should take her place in the Security Council".

China has twice blocked - in 2016 and 2017 - attempts to impose sanctions on the JeM leader.

The development comes even as China on March 13 blocked the listing of Masood Azhar as an worldwide terrorist under the United Nations Security Council's 1267 committee. "Why is Rahul Gandhi in a celebratory mood when the country stands pained with this attitude of China", BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad had said. "China is full of sincerity and ready to work with India to build on the consensus of our leaders for greater progress in the bilateral relations".
