Isolated China gives up trying to get LeT’s Makki included to the UN list of terrorists
By resisting India’s attempts to get Pakistan-based terror organisations and people added to the 1267 Sanctions Committee’s list of sanctioned parties throughout the years, China has served as Pakistan’s agent. In exchange, Pakistan receives silence from the Islamic world over Chinese Communist Party crimes committed against Uighur Sunni Muslims in the Xinjiang province.
China was compelled today to release the “technical” hold on the designation of Abdul Rehman Makki, the deputy leader of the Lashkar-e-Toiba based in Lahore, as a global terrorist by the 1267 UN Sanctions committee after India secured the support of 14 out of 15 UN Security Council members. Makki, the brother-in-law of Hafiz Saeed, the leader of the LeT and a designated terrorist, used to solicit money from the Middle East for the terrorist organisation while posing as the chair of the committee for international relations. In November 2010, the US Justice Department placed a $2 million bounty on Makki’s head.
China was marginalised in the UNSC over Makki, according to diplomats headquartered in New York, as India made it plain that it would keep pushing for the Lashkar terrorist to be added to the terrorist list and for China’s support of organisations operating out of Pakistan. As a permanent member of the UNSC, China had placed a technical hold on Makki’s designation as a foreign terrorist in the 1267 committee in July 2022. The same committee should designate LeT member Sajjid Mir, who killed 183 people on September 11, as a global terrorist, according to India.
