China asks US to hold its resolution on Masood Azhar, says matter ‘moving in direction of settlement’

Posted on

China has said that the issue of blacklisting Masood Azhar at the United Nations (UN) panel was heading towards a settlement.

China has also asked the United States (US) not to force through its own resolution on the matter.

“On the issue of the listing of Masood Azhar, China’s position remains unchanged. We are also having communication with relevant parties and the matter is moving towards the direction of settlement,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said.

Asked to elaborate further, Lu did not answer clearly.

“The matter is now moving in the direction of settlement. As to the specifics for the discussion in the 1267 committee, there are clear procedures and regulations regarding UNSC and its subsidiary bodies. We think members should follow and abide by such procedures.”

He was responding to a question whether anything was achieved after China claimed “positive progress” on the issue of declaring Azhar a terrorist.
