Joint proposal of India and America
An attempt to list Makki, the head of political affairs of Jamaat-ud-Dawa/Lashkar-e-Taiba and a relative of Lashkar chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, in the list of global terrorists has been approved by China, a close ally of Pakistan, in a joint resolution of India and the US on 16 June 2022. But it has been successful after seven months of being banned, because this time Beijing did not obstruct.
Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the Security Council
The decision to list an individual or organization under the 1267 Sanctions Committee is taken unanimously. 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.
China had obstructed
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. As per the guidelines of the committee, a member may request for more time to consider a motion by withholding the decision. During the period of validity of stay on a case, the decision on that case is considered pending.
