China for 'Closed Consultations' On J&K at the United Nations Security Council

China officially requested 'closed consultations' in the UN Security Council to address India revoking Jammu and Kashmir's unique status after Pakistan, Beijing's nearest ally, wrote a letter to Poland on the problem, the August Council President, a senior UN diplomat said.

The UN diplomat informed the Press Trust of India news agency that very lately an application for such a conference was filed, but no deadline has yet been set for it. The diplomat said that China requested closed meetings on the item ' India Pakistan Question ' of the Security Council agenda. The application referred to the letter from Pakistan to the President of the Security Council.

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Pakistan officially called for a UN Security Council special meeting to address India revoking Jammu and Kashmir's privileged status.

The diplomat said China also requested a formal application for such a session, but before making the decision on the time and date for the session, Poland must instruct and take into account the desires of other Council members.

The official said no final choice was made on the moment of the session so far, and Friday morning is the meeting's "earliest sensible choice."

Mr Qureshi had flown to Beijing to discuss with the Chinese leadership on the problem of increasing the problem of Kashmir in the United Nations Security Council. He also said that China supported Pakistan on the problem, and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi informed him that he thought "China will stand up for what's right on the problem of Kashmir."
