ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan has expressed disappointment over the non-designation of an Indian national Venumadhav Dongara as a terrorist by the United Nations Security Council 1267 Sanctions Committee.
Pakistan had proposed the designation of four Indian nationals in 2019 under the UN Security Council 1267 Sanctions List namely Venumadhav Dongara, Ajoy Mistry, Gobinda Patnaik, and Angara Appaji.
These individuals were financing, sponsoring, and organizing terrorism inside Pakistan by providing financial, technical, and material support to terrorist groups including Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, and others.
“We are disappointed that Pakistan’s proposal to designate Venumadhav Dongara as a terrorist has been objected to,” the Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said that in response to media queries on Wednesday.
The Foreign Office Spokesperson said that Pakistan hopes that the listing requests of the other three Indian nationals will be given due consideration by the UN Security Council 1267 Sanctions Committee in an objective and transparent manner.
Taking advantage of the prolonged conflict in our neighborhood, India has fomented terrorism inside Pakistan by providing training, financial, and material support to terrorist groups to kill innocent people in Pakistan.
These Indian nationals are now residing in India with impunity which vindicates Pakistan’s position that India is a state-sponsor of terrorism, the Spokesperson said.
