Three attempts to ban Jamaat-ud-Dawah, the frontal organisation of the Pakistan-based terror outfit LeT, in the UN Security Council were blocked by China in the past, and now all eyes would be on what Beijing does on fresh attempts to ban the outfit.
The sanctions committee of the Council had circulated a note to its members that the United States, backed by Britain and France, had twice tried to add JuD chief Hafiz Mohammed Saeed to the list of individuals and organisations connected to terrorism last May, but the move was blocked by China, according to a note circulated in the UNSC on Wednesday.
A similar attempt directed against the organisation in April 2006 was also blocked by China, the note said.
