After China signed the BRICS declaration 2017 that condemned terror groups operating from Pakistani soil, Pakistani media now believe that Beijing may not even block India when it comes with a resolution to blacklist Jaish-e-Mohammad chief terrorist Masood Azhar in the UN Security Council. In an editorial on BRICS declaration, Pakistan Today warned Pakistan should now worry that even China, which had earlier blocked India’s move to blacklist Azhar at the UN, has signed the declaration.
“What should worry Pakistan is that even China – which had repeatedly blocked India’s attempts to have the JeM leader Masood Azhar put on a UN Security Council blacklist – has signed the resolution. There is a likelihood of Beijing not stalling the resolution next time it is tabled in UNSC, Pakistan Today said. Even as Pakistan continues to deny the presence of terror groups like LeT, JeM and Haqqani network, which were condemned by BRICS declaration, the editorial warned Pakistan that “Continuing in a state of denial would harm Pakistan.”
It warned, “Pakistan must not make the mistake of dismissing the signal from the world’s leading emerging economies.”
