As a permanent member of the Security Council, China has the authority to veto any measure. "China should not prevent the Committee from doing the job the Security Council has entrusted it to do", another security council diplomat told PTI in response to a question.

The comments, seen as veiled criticism of Beijing, came a day after China blocked listing Azhar as a global terrorist by the sanctions committee of the UN Security Council. But US and European officials say they are waiting to see if the crackdown is effective or if the militants' infrastructure will spring back to life once global pressure on Islamabad subsides.

Masood Azhar is the leader of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), which carried out a deadly suicide bombing killing 40 troops in Indian-administered Kashmir.

We are grateful for the efforts of the Member States who moved the designation proposal and the unprecedented number of all other Security Council members as well as non-members who joined as co-sponsors.

India has expressed disappointment over China's decision but said it will "pursue all available avenues" to bring to justice terrorist leaders involved in attack on Indians. "Not a word comes out of his mouth when China acts against India", Congress President Rahul Gandhi said on Twitter, referring to Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Trump blasts California governor for halting executions
Newsom's office said he can act unilaterally because he's enacting a moratorium, not changing anyone's sentence. One in four people on death row in the United States are in California, according to the governor's office.

Competitors for supremacy in the region, China and India have long-standing territorial disputes but Modi and Xi have tried to patch up ties, banking on their personal chemistry to smooth over differences.

As China vetoed a possible United Nations declaration that Masood Azhar is an global terrorist, the Congress alleged that the Narendra Modi government is failure in building a diplomatic offensive against terrorism.

So, among the 15 members, only China raised an objection by putting a "technical hold" on the suggested move to declare Masood Azhar a UN-designated global terrorist.

"Weak Modi is scared of Xi". In January 2017, China once again placed a technical hold on the proposal which was moved by the UK, USA and France. Has Modi government's diplomatic overtures with China failed? "In 2019, India has the worldwide support", the external affairs minister said. The last time China blocked the move was in April 2016, months after the Jaish attack on the Pathankot air base. Your tweet will be read today in Jaish-e-Mohammad office and will be shown to others. Be assured that India will win the fight against terror.

"Pt. Nehru's infamous letter. dated August 2, 1955, states Informally, suggestions have been made by the USA that China should be taken into the United Nations but not in the Security Council, and that India should take her place in the Security Council".
