India will not cut a deal on the sanctioning of Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar by the United Nations Sanctions Committee (UNSC). Instead, India will show patience on China’s hold as it believes that Masood Azhar will eventually be sanctioned at the UN 1267 Sanctions committee, sources said on Saturday.

Expressing India’s disappointment over China’s move to place a technical hold on the sanctioning of Jaish chief Masood Azhar, sources said that the international community was supporting India on the issue and that the country had the support of 14 out of 15 members of the UN Security Council on the topic.
