Following the recent stance of France on sanction against Masood Azhar at the United Nations Security Council, Germany has come forward in support of India’s bid to declare him as a global terrorist, news agency ANI reported quoting German embassy spokesperson Hans Christian Winkler as saying.
Winkler said Germany has already started the process to put a ban on Masood as there is a talk on in the European Union in this regard. He is quite optimistic that the move would get support of other members and be successful; however, it may require some more time.
It is noted that due to only China’s four consecutive, intentional veto, the sanction against Masood could not be successful even though 14 out of 15 members supported the listing. He was the man behind the suicide attack on the Indian CRPF personnel resulting the loss of 40 lives in Pulwama last month.
