- India lambasts China-Pakistan at UN
- These two countries support terrorism
- China blocks blacklisted proposals
India Slams Pakistan-China: India has hit out at China at the UN Security Council meeting chaired by China, saying it is “extremely regrettable” that genuine and evidence-based proposals to blacklist some of the world’s most dreaded terrorists have been put on hold. being inserted in. India said such “double standards” had reduced the credibility of the Security Council’s sanctions regime to an “all-time low”. It is noteworthy that in June this year, China, a permanent member of the Security Council and a close ally of Pakistan, blocked a proposal by India and the US to list Pakistan-based terrorist Abdul Rehman Makki under the Security Council’s 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee.
India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ruchira Kamboj on Tuesday said that the trend of delaying or blocking the request to list terrorists without explanation must end. “For effective functioning of sanctions committees, there is a need to make them more transparent, accountable and fair. The trend of barring and obstructing the listed requests without any justification must end.” Kamboj said, “It is ‘extremely regrettable’ that genuine and evidence based proposals to blacklist some of the world’s most feared terrorists are being shelved. Such ‘double standards’ have reduced the credibility of the Security Council’s sanctions regime to an ‘all-time low’. We hope that when it comes to the fight against international terrorism, all the countries of the Security Council will speak in unison.
Neighbors respect terrorists
The US has put Makki on the list of banned terrorists. He is a relative of Lashkar-e-Taiba chief and 26/11 Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed. India’s Ambassador to the United Nations Ruchira Kamboj said India has the experience of getting “official hospitality” in the neighboring country to criminals despite their involvement in terrorist activities and being blacklisted by the United Nations. He was referring to Dawood Ibrahim, the head of D Company, who is believed to be in Pakistan. He is involved in several illegal businesses and has become India’s most wanted terrorist after the 1993 Mumbai blasts.
At the UN Security Council meeting on Tuesday chaired by China on “threats to international peace and security by acts of terrorism”, Kamboj said the link between terrorism and organized crime needs to be addressed. India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Kamboj said, “The link between terrorism and organized crime needs to be tackled. In India, we have firsthand experience of criminal gangs engaging in terrorist activities and receiving government hospitality in a neighboring country despite being blacklisted under the 1267 Sanctions Committee of the United Nations Security Council. The danger is looming over every country, then there is a need to fight such hypocrisy together.
For the first time in August 2020, Pakistan had acknowledged the presence of Dawood in its country. Dawood was included in the list of global terrorists by the US in 2003. India has been continuously asking the Pakistan government to hand over Dawood to him so that he can be tried. There are reports that he is in Karachi city of Pakistan.
