"Pakistan maintains that terrorism is a menace to the world.the UNSC 1267 Sanctions Committee listing is governed by clear rules and its decisions are taken through consensus.Pakistan has always advocated the need for respecting these technical rules and has opposed the politicisation of the committee", Faisal said.

France also welcomed the United Nations move to designate Azhar as a global terrorist, saying it "signals the successful realisation" of its efforts.

"Speaking on a Pakistani TV show, Faisal said: "(India should) give evidence that Masood Azhar had anything to do with the attack in Pulwama.

A veto-wielding permanent member of the UN Security Council, China was the sole hold-out in the 15-nation body on the bid to blacklist Azhar, blocking attempts by placing a "technical hold" and asking for "more time to examine" the proposal.

China put a technical hold in March on a fresh proposal to ban Masood Azhar, despite Jaish claiming responsibility for the Pulwama terror attack.

"On 1 May 2019, the Security Council Committee pursuant to resolutions 1267 (1999), 1989 (2011) and 2253 (2015) concerning ISIL (Da'esh), Al-Qaida, and associated individuals, groups, undertakings and entities approved the addition of the entry specified below to its ISIL (Da'esh) and Al-Qaida Sanctions List of individuals and entities subject to the assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo set out in paragraph 1 of Security Council resolution 2368 (2017) and adopted under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations".

The dossier on Masood Azhar submitted by India stated that he had close ties with Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden in the past. Senior party leader and finance minister Arun Jaitley said India stood vindicated with Azhar now declared a global terrorist.

On Masood Azhar's listing, China has also provided indications that it "supports the issue of listing" and there has been "positive progress" in the matter.

Guyger told investigators she thought she had encountered an intruder and that "the person did not follow her commands". Washington also pointed out that Guyger seemed more upset over losing her job than shooting Jean.

An assets freeze under the Sanctions Committee requires that all states freeze without delay the funds and other financial assets or economic resources of designated individuals and entities.

Pakistan comes out on top against India over baseless references linking JeM chief with Kashmiri struggle, says FO.

"According to the report China is expected to lift the technical hold which it had placed on March 13 on the proposal by the U.S., the United Kingdom and France, with all other Security Council members approving the move", he added. Pakistan carried out its own aerial bombardment the following day, and the two countries even fought a brief dogfight over Kashmir skies.

China and Pakistan will continue to deepen their high level exchanges and support each other and step up strategic coordination, "make more coordinated efforts in global and regional affairs and deepen our all weather strategic cooperation", he added.

India had been pushing for the move for years given that Indian intelligence agencies had succeeded in finding direct links between Masood Azhar-headed Jaish and a series of attacks in India. "Third, I believe, with the joint efforts of all parties, this issue can be properly resolved".

Azhar's freedom within Pakistan has been a sore point in the relationship between Western countries and Pakistan, and has led to repeat accusations by India that Islamabad uses and harbors militant groups to further its foreign policy agenda. The US principal deputy assistant secretary of state for South and Central Asia, Alice Wells, told her Indian interlocutors during a visit to New Delhi last week that Washington was looking for action against Azhar "in the near term", people familiar with developments said.

A proposal to declare Azhar as an worldwide terrorist was taken by the UNSC Sanctions Committee 1267, almost three months after the JeM carried out a ghastly terror attack on CRPF convoy in Pulwama district of Kashmir.

While there were reports suggesting that Beijing wanted to lift the hold around May 15, the other members of the UN Security Council, led by the U.S., have made it clear that time was running out for China and its all-weather ally Pakistan on the issue of Azhar.
