Pak Issues Order To Freeze Assets, Impose Travel Ban On Masood Azhar

New Delhi: The United Nations, declared Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar after the United Nations declared him as a "global terrorist". Pakistan has issued an official order to freeze the assets and impose a travel ban on the JeM chief.
 
The foreign ministry issued a notice on Wednesday that said, "the Federal Government is pleased to order that the Resolution 2368 (2017) be fully implemented" against Masood Azhar.

According to the notification, the government directed officials to take actions "as appropriate for the implementation of sanctions" against the JeM chief.

Masood Azhar is also banned from selling or purchasing arms and ammunition.

In a major diplomatic win for India, the United Nations designated Pakistan-based Masood Azhar as a "global terrorist" after China lifted its hold on a proposal by the US, the UK and France to blacklist him.

The US, the UK and France had moved the proposal to designate Masood Azhar as a "global terrorist" in the UN Security Council''s 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee in February, just days after the deadly Pulwama terror attack carried out by the JeM in Jammu and Kashmir.

Mohammad Faisal, foreign office spokesman of Pakistan on Wednesday said that Pakistan would "immediately enforce the sanctions" imposed on Masood Azhar.
