TIL Desk/National/New Delhi/ Congress president Rahul Gandhi mocks PM Modi for India’s diplomatic failure to push China to ban Masood Azhar. Rahul tweeted, “Weak Modi is scared of Xi. Not a word comes out of his mouth when China acts against India. NoMo’s China Diplomacy:
1. Swing with Xi in Gujarat
2. Hug Xi in Delhi
3. Bow to Xi in China
The Congress on Wednesday attacked the BJP government after China blocked a bid at the UN to designate Pakistan-based terror group JeM chief Masood Azhar as a “global terrorist”, saying Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s foreign policy has been a series of “diplomatic disasters”. The opposition party also slammed China for blocking the move.
In yet another setback to India’s bid to designate the Jaish-e-Mohammed’s chief as a global terrorist, China Wednesday put a technical hold on the 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 (JeM) killed 40 CRPF soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama, leading to a flare-up in tensions between India and Pakistan.
