Beijing: China is showing signs of softening its stand on the proposal by four other permanent members of the UN Security Council to declare Masood Azhar, the head of terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammed, a global terrorist. Revising its earlier position on this issue, China has said that an effort will be made to resolve this issue “the right way”.

However, China has not set a deadline for this. The changing stand of India’s powerful northern neighbour is significant, as it comes a day after Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to China.

Earlier, China had repeatedly vetoed the proposal to declare Masood a global terrorist at the UN Security Council.

China had disapproved of the proposal for the fourth time in March. France, the United States and the United Kingdom had moved this proposal after the name of Jaish emerged from the terrorist attack on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir. However, bending towards India on the issue, China has said it will find a solution to the deadlock. Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said he could only say that he believed it would be resolved “correctly”.

China was responding to reports that suggested it was withdrawing its opposition to France, the United States and Great Britain’s proposal to declare Masood Azhar a global terrorist.

This proposal had been brought under the Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee (officially Security Council Committee pursuant to resolutions 1267 (1999) and 1989 (2011) concerning Al-Qaida and associated individuals and entities) at the United Nations Security Council. After the objection of China, the United States, France and the United Kingdom pressured it, urging it to consider options on this issue.

China has said it has made its position on this issue clear several times. Geng said he wanted to emphasise only two points. The first is that the motion can be furthered only with the consent and communication of maximum members. Second, deliberations on the issue is going on and some progress has been made. China believes that, with the consent of all parties, the process can be expedited.
