(TibetanReview.net, Oct23, 2018) – Sino-India relations can improve only so far and no further. With little cause for optimism, India on Oct 22 asked China to support the pending application in the UN to designate Pakistan-based JeM terror group leader Masood Azhar as a global terrorist. It also asked Beijing not to give shelter to hardline ULFA leader Paresh Baruah on its soil, reported India’s PTI news agency Oct 22.

The two key issues were raised at the first India-China high level meeting on bilateral security cooperation which was co-chaired by India’s Home Minister Rajnath Singh and China’s State Councilor and Minister of Public Security Zhao Kezhi in New Delhi.

China is the lone supporter in the UN Security Council for the Pakistan-based terrorist leader. It has repeatedly blocked the bid at the United Nations to list Azhar as global terrorist as a favour to its all-weather friend Pakistan which is said to host a number of terrorist training camps targeting India.

Following two rounds of meetings, India’s home ministry said in a statement that the two sides discussed issues of mutual interest, including bilateral counter-terrorism cooperation, and welcomed increased security cooperation between India and China.

As previously reported, an agreement on security cooperation between India’s Home Ministry and China’s Ministry of Public Security was also signed by the two ministers. This was first ever India-China security cooperation pact.

Zhao is visiting India from Oct 21 to 25.
