BEIJING, Oct 23 - China on Tuesday made it clear that there is no change in its position on India�s request to list Pakistan-based JeM chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist by the UN and said it will decide on the issue on the �merits of the matter�.
China also shrugged off allegation of sheltering hardline United Liberation Front Of Assam (ULFA) leader Paresh Baruah, saying it adheres to the policy of non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries.
India on Monday asked China to support the pending application in the UN to designate Azhar as a global terrorist during the first India-China meeting on bilateral security cooperation that was co-chaired by Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Zhao Kezhi, State Councillor and Minister of Public Security, China, in New Delhi.
China has repeatedly blocked India�s bid at the United Nations to list Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Azhar as a global terrorist. � PTI
