Designating anyone as terrorist by UN serious issue: Chinese official
Insisting that designation of any individual as terrorist by the UN is a “serious issue”, a senior Chinese official on Wednesday said there was a need for more evidence from India for a better understanding to ba n JeM chief and Pathankot strike mastermind Masood Azhar by the global body.
Liu Jinsong, Deputy Chief of Mission and Minister at the Chinese Embassy, justified China’s action on India’s bid against the Pakistan-based terrorist and said his country can't be the judge to decide who is right and who is wrong on the issue. “At the UN, this is a very serious issue. We need to discuss (on the issue), we need some kind of understanding from the related countries, concerned countries. Pakistan is not your enemy right? It’s your brother, it’s your neighbour. It is a nation (born) from one nation,” Jinsong said, adding, “You were one family before. You can’t move neighbours. And you can have a new boyfriend or a girlfriend tomorrow, but you can't have your neighbours changed.”
