Pak’s LeT Leader Abdul Makki Named Global Terrorist by UN; China had Opposed Attempt A Year Back

Pakistan’s terrorist Abdul Rehman Makki was listed as a global terrorist by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Monday. In 2022 China opposed India’s bid to name him as a global terrorist.

“On 16 January 2023, the Security Council Committee pursuant to resolutions 1267 (1999), 1989 (2011), and 2253 (2015) concerning ISIL (Da’esh), Al-Qaida, and associated individuals, groups, undertakings, and entities approved the addition of the entry specified below to its ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida Sanctions List of individuals and entities subject to the assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo set out in paragraph 1 of Security Council resolution 2610 (2021) and adopted under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations,” the UN said in a statement.

Makki is already listed as a terrorist by India and the US. Makki is the brother-in-law of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief and 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed. He has also played a role in raising funds for LeT operations.

In the past, China tried to save several terrorists from Pakistan being listed as global terrorists by the UNSC. China repeatedly opposed proposals to name Maulana Masood Azhar, chief of the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) as a terrorist entity.
