Criticising China for extended support to Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar after it prevented India’s efforts to blacklist him on the international platform, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday said that Beijing would severely regret its decision to help a terrorist.

“Our Government has tried t do a lot but still there are disagreements on Masood Azhar on which China has taken a stand. But China will have to regret its stand, as to help a terrorist is neither in favour of the world nor in the favour of China,” BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain told ANI.

Hussain further stated that India has always maintained good relations with China and have yearlong trade relations, but still there are number of issues on which both the countries have discord.

On October 1, China extended its veto on India’s move in the United Nations to blacklist Pathankot attack mastermind Masood Azhar and with this, Beijing for the second time prevented India’s efforts.

China defending its move yesterday said that there were “different views” on India’s application and that its move will allow more time for the “relevant parties” to have consultations even when China is the lone member among the 15-member UNSC to oppose the ban on Azhar.
