New Delhi: Post the diplomatic victory of India to term JeM Chief Azhar Masood as global terrorist, it is revealed that India refused the terms and conditions of China which it gave to India prior the banning of Azhar.
According to reports, China offered India to lift its ‘technical-hold’ if India will not attack Pakistan and de-escalate tensions after the Pulwama terror attack. India refused.
After the attacks of February 14 on a CRPF convoy that killed 40 jawans, for which Jaish claimed responsibility, angered entire India and PM Modi declared that the terror strike would not go unpunished.
Most of the countries around the world appreciated India’s right to self defence. It became clear that India would not face diplomatic heat if t retaliated militarily against Pakistan-sponsored terror.
China was strictly against the clash between India and Pakistan post the terror strike. China offered to list Azhar in return for India’s de-escalate. In 2016 and 2017, when China repeatedly blocked Azhar’s listing, it used to ask India to negotiate directly with Pakistan. India correctly interpreted this as a thin end of the wedge to try to get India to reopen talks with Pakistan. After the Pathankot attack in 2016, India had stopped official dialogue with Pakistan.
