U.S., UK, France ask U.N. to blacklist militant leader behind Kashmir attack
27 Feb 2019

The United States, Britain and France proposed on Wednesday that the United Nations Security Council blacklist the head of Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad, which said it attacked an Indian paramilitary convoy in disputed Kashmir.

However, the move is likely to be opposed by China, which previously prevented the Security Council’s Islamic State and al Qaeda sanctions committee from sanctioning JeM leader Masood Azhar in 2016 and 2017.

China’s U.N. mission did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the new proposal.
