    India to continue efforts to get Masood Azhar listed under UN 1267 sanctions

    New Delhi will continue to make concerted efforts to ensure that JeM chief Masood Azhar gets listed under UN 1267 sanctions regime with 14 of the 15 UN Security Council Members supporting India to list him as a global terrorist.

    Ministry of External Affairs, MEA sources said, India is working with members of United Nations Security Council for the listing of Azhar. Sources said, India is confident that eventually Masood Azhar will be listed as a global terrorist.

    New Delhi has already made it clear that Terror is non-negotiable. The sources indicated that New Delhi is willing to give China more time to work out issues with Pakistan in the listing of Masood Azhar.

    On Pakistan, the sources said, the neighbouring country has only taken cosmetic steps to dismantle terrorist organisations. They said, there has been no substantial action by Islamabad on curtailing terror financing.

    Sources ruled out of any kind of mediation by any country between India and Pakistan. Sources said Pakistan used F16 in offensive action on Feb 27th strikes and this has been conveyed to the US and the US sides has taken note of Indian concern.
