Indias Proposal for UN Counter-Terrorism Sanctions Regime



  Aug 02, 2023

India's Proposal for UN Counter-Terrorism Sanctions Regime and China's Double Standards


Q.What is India's proposal regarding UN counter-terrorism sanctions regime within BRICS?

India has proposed that BRICS nations should jointly prepare a list of terrorists and their proxies under the UN counter-terrorism sanctions regime. The objective is to ensure a fair and unbiased approach to countering terrorism within BRICS countries and avoid the use of double standards in dealing with terrorist entities.
 

Q.How has China responded to the proposal?

China's response to previous attempts at listing terrorists as international terrorists under the UN sanctions regime has been contentious. It has rejected certain proposals, raising concerns about its double standards in dealing with terrorism-related issues.
 

Q.How do China's actions demonstrate double standards?

China's rejection of listing specific terrorists as international terrorists under the UN sanctions regime raises questions about its approach to counter-terrorism. China has repeatedly blocked a joint India-US proposal to list Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Sajid Mir as an international terrorist. In May, China also rejected the attempt to list another Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) deputy chief, Abdul Rauf Azhar, as a terrorist. India believes that by creating a BRICS list of terrorists, it can bypass China and other countries that have been blocking UN sanctions against terrorists.

The perception of double standards arises when certain terrorist entities with connections to China's interests are shielded from international sanctions, potentially undermining global efforts to combat terrorism effectively.
 

Q.What are the implications of China's double standards in countering terrorism?

China's selective approach in dealing with terrorist entities could hinder the collective efforts of BRICS nations to combat terrorism. It may create divisions within the group and weaken the credibility of their joint initiatives to address security challenges. The lack of unanimity among BRICS members in countering terrorism can be a significant obstacle to achieving comprehensive and coordinated action.
 

Q.How does India view China's stance on counter-terrorism within BRICS?

India's proposal for a unified list of terrorists under the UN sanctions regime is a step towards countering terrorism effectively. However, China's rejection of previous attempts to list certain terrorists demonstrates a lack of consensus within BRICS and raises concerns about China's commitment to combating terrorism without political considerations.
