Extracts from Foreign Ministry Spokesperson’s Regular Press Conference on March 29, 2019
Q: China has put technical holds on the issue of Masood’s listing in the 1267 Committe of the UN on the grounds that the matter required conclusive evidence and that India and Pakistan should conduct (more) consultations. No matter what the evidence provided by the Indian side, the Pakistani side terms it insufficient. Do you think that Pakistan should also investigate and provide evidence? Should countries supporting Pakistan not consider this factor also?
A: The 1267 Committee of the UN Security Council has clear norms and requirements for listing. of individuals The relevant practices of the Chinese side are in line with the provisions of the Security Council resolutions and also in line with the Rules of Procedure of the Sanctions Committee.
We will continue to communicate with all parties in a responsible and constructive manner and work together to find a solution to the problem.
