It is expected that China will be opposing the proposal as the country’s UN mission did not immediately comment on the proposal. However, they endorsed India's action against terrorism. In a veiled reference to Pakistan, China had said that “those committing, orchestrating, inciting or supporting terrorist acts must be held accountable and brought to justice.”
