US, UK and France ask UN Security Council to ban JeM chief Masood Azhar in a fresh proposal

News Agencies | Updated on: 28 February 2019, 9:07 IST

The US, the UK and France have moved a fresh proposal in the UN Security Council to designate Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist, a listing that will subject him to global travel ban, asset freeze and arms embargo.

 The fresh proposal was moved Wednesday by the three permanent veto-wielding members of the 15-nation Security Council.

The Security Council Sanctions Committee will have 10 working days to consider the fresh proposal submitted by the three members.
