India asks China to support application in UN on Masood Azhar, not to give shelter ULFA chief

NEW DELHI: India on Monday asked China to support the pending application in the UN to designate Pakistan-based JeM terror group leader Masood Azhar as a global terrorist, officials said.

It also asked Beijing not to give shelter to hardline ULFA leader Paresh Baruah on its soil, they said.

The two key issues were raised at the first India-China high level meeting on bilateral security cooperation which was co-chaired by Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Zhao Kezhi, State Councilor and Minister of Public Security, China, here.

“The key concerns of both the countries were flagged and both the sides assured each other full cooperation,” an official, who was part of the Indian delegation, said. (AGENCIES)
