UNSC expected to hold closed meeting on Friday to discuss India’s action in occupied Kashmir

United Nations, August 15, 2019: UN Security Council is expected to meet behind-closed-doors on Friday to take up Pakistan’s request for the 15-member body to deal with the grave situation in Indian occupied arising from New Delhi’s decision to abolish the special status of the disputed region that have heightened tensions between the two South Asian neighbours.

Polish Ambassador Joanna Wronecka, who is the president of the Security Council for the month of August, told reporters Wednesday night that the Council is likely to hold consultations on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday, but did not give the time.

The request for consultations was made by China, a permanent member of the Security Council, she said.
