The Government of India (GoI) continues to work with the UN Security Council sanctions committee on the listing of Masood Azhar as a ”global terrorist” and will show patience on the issue, official sources said today, days after China blocked a proposal at the world body to ban the JeM chief.

They also said steps taken by Pakistan in the last few days, against terror groups are cosmetic in nature.

“India continues to work with the UNSC’s sanction committee on the listing of JeM chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist,” official sources said.

India believes “terrorism is a major issue for China. They know a number of terror groups are based in Pakistan”, sources added.

On China blocking Azhar’s listing as a global terrorist, sources said, India will show patience as long as it takes.
