New York / Islamabad: During a meeting of the UN Security Council, the United States rejected a proposal to declare an Indian a global terrorist, which Pakistan expressed disappointment on Wednesday.
Venumadha Dongara was one of the four Indians proposed by Pakistan to be nominated in 2019 under the UN's 1267 sanctions list, the other three were identified as Ajjustry, Gobinda Patnaik and Angara Apaji.
"They were financing, sponsoring and organizing terrorism in Pakistan by providing financial, technical and material support to the Indian Tehreek-e-Taliban, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar and other terrorist groups," the statement said. Dongara's name was objected to, but it is hoped that the UNSC 1267 Sanctions Committee will consider the case of the other three citizens in an objective and transparent manner.
"Taking advantage of the long-running conflict in our neighborhood, India has fueled terrorism inside Pakistan by providing training, financial and material support to terrorist groups to kill innocent people in Pakistan," the statement said. He said that these citizens are now residing in India with exception which proves the position of Pakistan that India is the state sponsor of terrorism.
