India welcomes UN listing LeT righthand as global terrorist

India has welcomed the United Nations Security Council's decision to list Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba's (LeT) deputy chief Abdul Rehman Makki as a global terrorist, saying that India will press the international community to take strict action against terrorism.

Earlier, on January 16, China finally lifted its 'technical hold' on the designation of Makki as a global terrorist under the 1267 UN Sanctions Committee after the country was left isolated in the Security Council.
This listing comes after China last year put a 'technical hold' India's bid to name the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) leader a global terrorist.

In June 2022, India slammed China after it blocked the proposal to list terrorist Abdul Rehman Makki under the Sanctions Committee, also known as the UNSC 1267 Committee.

India and the US have already listed Makki as a terrorist under their domestic laws. He has been involved in raising funds, recruiting and radicalizing youth to violence and planning attacks in India, especially in Jammu and Kashmir.
