United Nations Security Council is scheduled to hold a rare meeting on Kashmir after India revoked special status to J&K. The meeting will take place behind closed doors on Friday, diplomats said.
News agency AFP reported that Poland, which currently holds the Security Council’s rotating presidency, has listed the matter for discussion at 10:00 am local time (7:30pm IST).
It is extremely rare for the Security Council to discuss Kashmir. The last time there was a full Security Council meeting on the Himalayan region was in 1965, the report said.
Friday’s discussion will not be considered a full security meeting but rather referred to as closed door consultations, which are becoming increasingly more common, diplomats said.
