The United Nations Security Council on Wednesday designated Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist after China lifted its hold on a proposal to blacklist him under the Security Council's Sanctions Committee, reports News18.
Hours after the UN move, the Pakistani media quoted the country's foreign office as saying that it will "immediately enforce UN sanctions" imposed on Azhar.
Sharing the news, India's Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador, Syed Akbaruddin, tweeted, "Big, small, all join together. Masood Azhar designated as a terrorist in @UN Sanctions list. Grateful to all for their support." News18 reported.
