The United Nations Security Council in a closed door meeting on Indian Occupied Kashmir has raised deep concerns over human rights violation in Kashmir as well as rising tensions between Pakistan and India.
The United Nations Security Council, which met behind-closed-doors in New York discussed the grave situation in Indian occupied Kashmir for the second time in five months. China’s UN Ambassador Zhang Jun told reporters at UN Headquarters that we had a meeting on Jammu and Kashmir. He said the 15-member Council heard a briefing from the UN Secretariat on the situation.
He said the issue of Kashmir between India and Pakistan is always on the agenda of the Security Council. Replying to a question, the Chinese Ambassador to the UN said our position on Kashmir issue is very clear. China regards Kashmir as a territory disputed between India and Pakistan and supports UN resolutions calling for the exercise by Kashmiri people of their right of self-determination through an UN-supervised plebiscite.
To another question, the Chinese envoy said he is sure the meeting helped both parties to understand the risk of further escalation and will encourage them to approach to each other and to have dialogue and to seek means to seek solutions through dialogues.
The Department of Peace Operations and the Department of Political and Peace-building Affairs briefed the UN Security Council on the situation in Kashmir, followed by a discussion on the situation among Council members in which all of them participated.
