The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) will meet at China’s request today to discuss the situation in occupied Jammu and Kashmir, diplomats said.
The council will meet behind closed doors for the first time since a similar gathering in August, which was also called by Pakistan ally China, after India stripped the area of its decades-old autonomy.
In a letter to the Security Council on Dec 12, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi expressed concern about a possible further escalation of tensions, according to Reuters.
