New Delhi: India’s efforts to corner terrorist Masood Azhar is bearing fruit. On Sunday, the Chinese Ambassador to India said his country would “solve the matter” (of Masood Azhar).

France, the United States and Britain, with constant nudging by the Narendra Modi government of India, are trying to persuade China to change its stance on the said terrorist.

China’s Ambassador to India Lio Zhenghui said, “We will sort this matter out.”

An interesting development on Saturday suggests that India has reached an agreement with China on the issue already. As though in anticipation of today’s comment, India, it was reported by the media on 16 March, will “show patience for as long as it takes” for China to come around. On Saturday, India’s permanent representative at UN, Syed Akbaruddin tweeted,

This is just a “technical stop”, the Chinese Ambassador said on Sunday, which means that a change in China’s stand is under serious consideration. “Trust me, this matter will be settled,” the ambassador said.

During the celebration of Holi in the Chinese Embassy, the ambassador said, “We wish to fully understand the case of Masood Azhar. We have full faith (that we will soon reach a conclusion). We understand the concern of India in this matter too. We are absolutely optimistic that this matter will be resolved soon.”

Lio said that the cooperation agreed upon at the Wuhan conference is on the right track and a fast track. “We are satisfied with the cooperation and are optimistic about the future,” he added.

Whereas China is under pressure to declare Azhar a global terrorist, the United States, France and the United Kingdom have adopted a tough stance against the terrorist after China’s veto. The US, France and Britain are still discussing the matter with China.

If Azhar is not declared a global terrorist despite the three countries’ efforts, they are considering the proposal of an open debate on this issue in the largest arm of the UN, the General Assembly.

According to sources in foreign missions, the United States, France and Britain are now working out a way to declare Masood Azhar, the head of the terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed, as a global terrorist at the Security Council.

The three countries of the West are finalising with China also the language of the proposal to declare Azhar as a global terrorist.

France, Britain and the United States had proposed declaring Masood Azhar as a global terrorist at the Security Council. Due to the veto of China, the move was stuck again.

India expressed resentment over China’s veto, which was the fourth time the northern neighbour had done it. India had said, however, that it would continue the efforts to make China come around on the matter.
