It is for the fourth time that China, an ally of Pakistan, has vetoed against the move to list JeM chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist.
New Delhi: The Congress on Wednesday said that China blocking the move to designate Masood Azhar as a global terrorist in the United Nations Security Council was a sad day in the global fight against terrorism and slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his foreign policy.
Party's communications in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala said that China blocking JeM chief Masood Azhar's designation as global terrorist reaffirms its position of being an inseparable ally of terrorism's breeding ground-Pakistan.
"A sad day in the global fight against terrorism! China blocking Masood Azhar's designation as global terrorist reaffirms Chinese position of being an inseparable ally of terrorism's breeding ground-Pakistan Sadly, Modiji's foreign policy has been a series of diplomatic disasters," he said in a tweet.
China kept Masood Azhar, the chief of the terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), under its protective wings, vetoing a fourth attempt to declare him a global terrorist and sanction him.
JeM has claimed responsibility for Pulwama attack.
