United Nations: The UN Security Council (UNSC) will hold closed-door meeting on the Kashmir developments on Friday at the request of China, media reports stated.
China’s request for the meeting was made in a letter and came up during the Council’s informal consultations on Wednesday, informed a diplomat at the Security Council.
The format of the meeting as a closed-door consultation would prevent Pakistan participating in it.
The last time there was a full Security Council meeting on the Himalayan region was in 1965.
Friday’s discussion is not considered a full security meeting but rather referred to as closed door consultations, which are becoming increasingly more common, diplomats said.
