As per news report of The Indian Express, sources said China put a hold on the proposal by India and the US to designate Azhar as a global terrorist and subject him to assets freeze, travel ban, and arms embargo. “China should reflect on its response that signals double standards on combating terrorism. Protecting well-known terrorists from sanctioning in this manner will only undermine its credibility and risk exposing even itself more to the growing threat of terrorism,” said a government source.
