UN Security Council decided to discuss Kashmir issue on Friday

NEW YORK: In a major diplomatic breakthrough for Pakistan on an international level, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has granted the country’s request to discuss India’s decision to revoke the special status of occupied Kashmir on Friday.

Speaking to reporters UNSC President Joanna Wronecka said, “The UNSC will discuss the Jammu and Kashmir situation behind closed doors most likely on August 16.”

When asked about the timing of the meeting, Wronecka said, “Most probably on Friday as the Security Council would not operate on Thursday.”

The council has taken up the issue of the critical situation in Indian-occupied Kashmir after almost 50 years.
