US, UK, France give China ultimatum over JeM chief

The US, France and the UK have asked China to lift its hold by 23 April on a resolution banning Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Maulana Masood Azhar by the United Nations, a news report said yesterday. China had on 14 March stalled a proposal co-sponsored by France, UK and the US to ban Azhar, who group claimed responsibility for the 14 February suicide attack on an Indian paramilitary convoy in Kashmir’s Pulwama region killing 40 personnel — igniting tensions between India and Pakistan. If China did not lift its hold by then, the US would formally introduce its resolution on banning Azhar at the UNSC bypassing the 1267 sanctions committee, the report said.
