PARIS, Mar 15: France today banned Jaish-e Mohammad chief Masood Azhar at the national level, putting a freeze on his assets. The government of Emmanuel Macron also said it would "raise the issue with our European partners" to include him in the list of people involved in terrorism.
The move of France came days after China blocked a resolution of the United Nations Security Council to name the Jaish chief a global terrorist. France had moved the resolution, which came be sponsored by multiple nations.
"France has always been and always will be by India's side in the fight against terrorism," read a statement from the French government, which cited the Jaish suicide attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama.    -REUTERS
