Continuing its stance against India, China on Friday said that it will keep blocking India’s efforts to ban Pakistani militant Masood Azhar and New Delhi’s bid to join Nuclear Suppliers Group. The statement comes a day before Chinese President Xi Jinping scheduled visit to India for the 8th BRICS summit. China’s ministry of foreign affairs said there were “differing” views among members of the United Nations Security Council on listing Masood Azhar as a “terrorist”. “I have stated China’s position. I would like to reiterate that the UN committee dealing with the listing does it according to provisions of the UN charter. We maintain that this committee should work on true facts and make a decision according to consensus of its members,” MFA spokesperson said on Friday. The spokesperson said that many parties are divided in listing of the ‘relevant people’.

“This will give enough time to make the listing decision and also shows the responsible and professional attitude of the Chinese side,” he added. China had vetoed the resolution on Azhar’s banning at UNSC for the second time ealier this month. Shuang also reiterated that there is no change in China’s position on issue of India’s entry in 48-member Nuclear Supplier Groups. “China’s position has not changed regarding the joining of the NSG by India,” Geng said.

    India should start bombing the areas where the CPEC pes through POK. Secondly vigorously start Free Tibet and East Turkmenistan movement otherwise what the point in keeping Dalai Lama in asylum all these years. Nehru's romanticism laced politics has done enough damage to our country with more than 100,000 lives lost in Kashmir and loss of face in 1962 defeat.

          China does the right thing because India has been very hostile towards all its neighbor countries especially China and stan. As a result, China has to be Iron Brother of stan to protect South Asia from India's destruction.
