China set to block Masood Azhar ban defying US, India
BEIJING: In what could plunge Sino-Indian ties into fresh turmoil, China is likely to officially block and thereby terminate a US backed proposal to get Pakistan based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar designated a global terrorist by the UN.
The proposal, which had the backing of UK and France too, was introduced by the US in January this year and, days later, put on a technical hold by China which, as a permanent UNSC member, wields veto power.
The technical hold was extended by Beijing for another 3 months in August and is set to expire this week on Thursday. Since it can't be extended any further, as top intelligence sources closely watching the development said, China is moving to introduce a "full fledged block" to dispose off the US proposal.

The Chinese can never ever be trusted . We should become full fledged military allies with Japan and US. The Chinese have pushed us into it. Be sure China will do everything possible to stifle India''s rise in the comity of nations . They have only two rogue nations as their friends. A country is known by the company it keeps!

China has lost its right to be a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and should be replaced by India.
