#BoycottChineseProducts trends on Twitter as China blocks move on Azhar

China on Wednesday vetoed a resolution in United Nations Security Council seeking a ban on outlawed Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief Maulana Masood Azhar, according to the Indian media.

But China said it needed more time to examine the request, asking for a hold.

"Only a solution that is acceptable to all sides could fundamentally provide a chance for a lasting solution to the issue".

"I want to say that China always adopts a responsible attitude, engage in consultations with various parties and properly deal with this issue", Lu said.

Swaraj's remarks came hours before the deadline to raise objection to the listing of a proposal to declare Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Azhar as a global terrorist before the 1267 al-Qaida Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council.

".We can not, of course, accept this as it means falling out with China and it would be very unfair for a great country like China not to be in the Security Council", he said in a series of tweets.

"We are disappointed by this outcome", India's foreign ministry said in a statement.

"This has prevented action by the worldwide community to designate the leader of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), a proscribed and active terrorist organization which has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir on 14 February 2019", the statement said.

India was riled after China blocked a United Nations move to list the leader of a militant organisation in Kashmir as a global terrorist.

He said the concerned institutions will have to abide by the laws and procedure on this issue.

The Pakistan-based terrorist group claimed responsibility for the February 14 suicide vehicle bombing in Indian-administered Kashmir that killed 40 members of its security forces, bringing the volatile nations to the brink of a full-blown war.

The proposal had been moved by US, UK and France after JeM claimed responsibility for the Pulwama terror attack that left over 40 Indian security personnel dead in Kashmir.

Gandhi claimed Modi was "weak" and "scared" of Chinese President Xi Jinping.

China has historically used Pakistan to try to thwart India's rise as a challenger to China's dominance in Asia. China has been systematically providing diplomatic support, economic investment and arms to Pakistan. "China is full of sincerity and ready to work with India to build on the consensus of our leaders for greater progress in the bilateral relations".

The move was followed by China placing a "technical hold" on the request, the fourth such block on Azhar by Beijing.

"NaMo's China Diplomacy: Swing with Xi in Gujarat, Hug Xi in Delhi, Bow to Xi in China", Rahul Gandhi wrote on Twitter. "Be assured that India will win the fight against terror".

National Conference leader and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said "Pakistan gets its way once again".
