India welcomes UNSCís Haqqani sanction

India has welcomed the UN sanction on Pakistan-based Islamist insurgent group Haqqani Network and its chief of suicide operations and has called upon the international community to be united in its efforts to isolate such terror groups.

"India welcomes the move by the UN Security Council to list the Haqqani Network among the entities that now face an asset freeze, travel ban and arms embargo. This group has also targeted Indian interests in the past," said MEA spokesperson.

The attack on the Indian embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan, is suspected to be the handiwork of the terror group. The UNSC Afghanistan/Taliban Sanctions Committee also added the group and Qari Zakir to its list of entities that face similar sanction.

The move comes on the same day the US State Department designated Zakir as a "global terrorist" and imposed financial sanctions against him. The global body cleared the sanction procedure on November 5 after it received no objection on the process from any of the members.
