India will continue to pursue all available avenues to ensure that terrorist leaders who are involved in heinous attacks on Indian citizens are brought to justice.
New Delhi expressed its disappointment last night over the non-listing of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar as global terrorist under the UN Sanctions regime, as China put technical hold on the proposal.
The Ministry of External Affairs in a release said this move prevented action by the international community to designate the leader of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), a proscribed and active terrorist organization which has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir on 14 February.
India said it is grateful for the efforts of the Member States, who moved the designation proposal and the unprecedented number of all other Security Council members as well as non-members who joined as co-sponsors. (AIR)
