On Masood Azhar, “China Won’t Play The Waiting Game For Long” (Part I)

On Masood Azhar, “China Won’t Play The Waiting Game For Long” (Part I)

The narrative built around the expectation that Pakistan will have a change of heart that will translate into a change of behavior in dealing with terrorists has fallen flat, says India’s union minister Hardeep Singh Puri. In an exclusive interview to SNI’s Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale, Puri says the Balakot strike by India in response to the Pulwama terror attack has brought about a change in the way India has dealt with misadventure from across the border. Regarding China putting a technical hold on a UN resolution that seeks to designate Jaish chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist, the former diplomat-turned-union minister says he has a feeling the Chinese won’t play the waiting game for long. In response to Pakistani PM Imran Khan admitting that the armed militias in his country are a creation of the Pakistani army, Puri says it’s the admission by a “failed military state that cannot have its goons under control”.
