Beijing, Jan 5: Chi on Thursday refuted Indian allegations it had double standards on terrorism and said it took a “just” stand by blocking New Delhi’s bid to list Pakistani Masood Azhar as a global terrorist. “Allegation that Chi adopts double standards on the UN Security Council 1267 committee listing matter does not stand. Chi takes action based on solid evidence that is the one standard we use,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said here. Geng was responding to remarks by Indian Minister of State for Exterl Affairs M.J. Akbar on Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Azhar, accused of masterminding the 2016 Pathankot terror attack on an Indian air base. Geng said: “We have taken a responsible and constructive part in relevant discussion in a professiol and objective way. Relevant members differed on this issue.” (IANS)
