Terrorism and global fault lines

Yet again on December 30, China continued to block India s attempts to      ban Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar by vetoing India s proposal for the said purpose at UN. This officially ended a terrible year for bilateral relations between India and China which saw   the Chinese block on Nuclear Suppliers Group membership for India, India s invitations to Uighur, Falun Gong and Tibetan activists, China s economic corridor through Pakistan, tensions over the South China Sea and  the expulsion of Chinese journalists from Mumbai.
Even in past, China has blocked India s proposals at the UN to label Abdul Rehman Makki and Azam Cheema and Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin of the Lashkar-e-Taiba as terrorists. But the case of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar who was exchanged for hostages on the Kandahar tarmac after the hijack of IC-814 in 1999, is even more significant considering his open involvement in many terrorist attacks from Parliament attack to the Pathankot attack and in between. It is not just limited to bilateral terms, it is also fragmenting global consensus on terrorism.
By UNSC resolution on terrorism (UNSCR 1373) in 2001, Taliban, Al-Qaeda and all allied groups were banned and sanctions were imposed on anyone dealing with the Taliban and Osama bin Laden. They were considered common global enemy. But in 2011, to facilitate talks with Taliban, the UNSC separated Taliban committee and made it simply al-Qaeda sanctions committee. Now Russia wants  some Taliban figures to be removed from the UN sanctions list to “foster a peaceful dialogue between Kabul and the Taliban movement”.
Global leaders are picking up their teams. There is no common enemy in geopolitics.
