United Nations, September 3
India has thanked members of the UN Security Council who thwarted Pakistan’s bid to get two Indian nationals listed as terrorists by the world physique’s sanctions committee in addition to Islamabad’s “blatant try” to politicise the UN process on terrorism.
Pakistan had submitted the names of Angara Appaji and Gobinda Patnaik for designation below the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council.
However, Pakistan’s try was thwarted on Wednesday because the US, the UK, France, Germany and Belgium blocked the transfer within the Council to checklist Appaji and Patnaik. Sources stated no proof was given by Pakistan in its case to get the people listed.
Similarly, an earlier try by Pakistan to checklist Ajoy Mistry and Venumadhav Dongara was blocked by the Council round June/July.
“Pakistan’s blatant try to politicise 1267 particular process on terrorism by giving it a non secular color, has been thwarted by UN Security Council. We thank all these Council members who’ve blocked Pakistan’s designs,” India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador T S Tirumurti tweeted on Wednesday.
Last month, India had laid naked a lie by Pakistan about Indian nationals within the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions List of the UN Security Council.
In response to the comment by Pakistan that it submitted names of the 4 Indians to be proscribed below the Sanctions List, India had stated the Sanctions List is “public and the world can see none of those people are in it.
The 1267 Committee works on the idea of proof and never random accusations thrown in to divert their time and a focus”. PTI
