Britain, France and the United States on Wednesday asked the UN Security Council to impose sanctions on the Masood Azhar, the chief of terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed.
It was the third attempt to put Masood Azhar on the UN terror blacklist, which would subject him to a global travel ban and assets freeze.
China has twice blocked — in 2016 and 2017 — attempts to impose sanctions on the JeM leader. The group itself was added to the terror list in 2001. Diplomats said they expected China to again raise objections.

Apparently US, UK, France move fresh proposal in UN Security Council to designate Jaish-e-Mohammed’s Masood Azhar as global terrorist.
How does this change anything? It’s not like he was walking around buying chuddies and T-Shirts in malls?

Sources say US, UK and France continue to look at options to arrive at a consensus among countries on listing of Masood Azhar in the UNSC 1267 sanctions committee. A resolution would be the last resort if China once again appears to be heading toward putting a technical hold.
