The 1267 ISIS (Daesh) and Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the United Nations Security Council has included 68-year-old Makki in the list of declared terrorists. There is a provision to confiscate the property of the people included in this list, to impose travel and arms restrictions on them. For this, India and its allied countries were trying for years. With this, India has achieved a major diplomatic victory on the front of terrorism against Pakistan.
China, a close ally of Pakistan, on June 16, 2022, blocked a joint proposal by India and the US to list Makki, a relative of Lashkar chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, as a global terrorist. Later, this has happened after 7 months after China backed down from blocking.
In this regard, when China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenwen was questioned, he said that terrorism is the common enemy of humanity. He was also asked whether China will take the same decision on the issue of remaining 4 Pakistani terrorists.
To this, he said that the 1267 Committee is an important international mechanism against terrorism and that the listing of terrorists or terrorist organizations under the supervision of the United Nations is conducive to increasing international counter-terrorism cooperation in response to terrorist threats. The people concerned have been convicted and sentenced by Pakistan. The list also shows Pakistan’s determined fight against terrorism.

The 15-member Security Council has created the Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee, in which China was the only country with the right of veto as a permanent member, which blocked the process of listing Makki. In June last year, there was no consensus on listing Makki under the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee after China blocked a joint resolution between India and the US.
