The sanctions committee of the Council had circulated a note to its members that the United States, backed by Britain and France [Images], had tried to add JuD chief Hafiz Mohammed Saeed to the list of individuals and organisations connected to terrorism last May, but was blocked by China, according to a note circulated in the UNSC on Wednesday.
