India slams UNSC's inability to sanction leaders of terror organisations

  |   India News

India has strongly criticised the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) for taking months to consider sanctioning leaders of groups it has itself designated as terror entities, in an obvious reference to the “technical hold” on India’s bid to get Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar banned by the UN.

Asserting that the Security Council is stuck in its own “time warp and politics,” India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Syed Akbaruddin on Monday slammed the Council’s inability to sanction the leaders of terrorist organisations.

“While our collective conscience is ravaged every day by terrorists in some region or another, the Security Council gives itself 9 months to consider whether to sanction leaders of organisations it has itself designated as terrorist entities,” Mr Akbaruddin said at a session on equitable representation and increase in the membership of the Security Council.
