Outraged by China blocking for the fourth time a move to designate JeM chief Masood Azhar a global terrorist, responsible UNSC members warned they "may be forced to pursue other actions" at the Security Council if Beijing continued with this policy.

The UN security council wanted to freeze Masood Azhar's assets and slap a travel ban on him. However, on the behest of Pakistan, China placed a "technical hold" on the process in March and October of 2016.

One of Pakistan's closest regional allies, China has blocked three previous attempts by India to blacklist Azhar and said it needed more proof and time to examine the sanctions against the JeM chief. The JeM had taken responsibility for the attack on a CRPF bus on February 14th at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) in which over 40 personnel were killed.

Azhar founded Jaish-e-Muhammed, or the Army of Mohammed, in 2000 in Pakistan and has used the group to funnel weapons, cash and other support to the Taliban and al-Qaida, according to the United States. India launched airstrikes to destroy insurgent bases inside Pakistan, prompting Pakistan to retaliate, leading to an unprecedented clash between warplanes from both sides.
