Despite China blocking Masood Azhar's listing as a global terrorist at the UNSC for the fourth time, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in a series of tweets drew a stark comparison of India's diplomatic prowess in comparison to that in the UPA-era.
Swaraj through her tweets shared how the global community stood along with India in a battle against terrorism during the PM Modi-led NDA era, while in 2009 UPA government was a 'lone proposer'
However, in 2016 India's proposal against Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar was co-sponsored by the United States, France, and United Kingdom. While, in 2017, the proposal was moved by the above-mentioned countries.
Again in 2019, following the ghastly Pulwama terror attack, the proposal was moved by the United States, France, and United Kingdom, moreover was supported by all UNSC members, excluding China and was co-sponsored non-members of the UNSC like- Australia, Bangladesh, Italy, and Japan.
The Union Minister through her tweets reiterated the "unprecedented support" that India has received of the international community and that the reason she shared these facts were to show leaders who believe this is India's diplomatic failure.
In addition to this, despite China's blockage, France has decided to freeze the French assets of Masood Azhar founder of the Jaish-e-Mohammed, that is responsible for carrying out many terror strikes in India and was involved in the attack on Parliament in 2001, the Pathankot air force base in 2016, army camps in Jammu and Uri, and the latest suicide attack on CRPF in Pulwama which claimed the lives of 40 personnel.
In India's effort to curb terrorism, here are the countries that supported India.
Permanent members- United States, United Kingdom, France, and Russia.
Non-permanent members- Belgium, Cote d'Iviore, Germany, Indonesia, Kuwait, Peru, Poland, South Africa, and Equatorial Guinea.
