Mishal Malik terms UNSC meeting a major success of Pakistan, Kashmiris

The United Nations Security Council will hold a closed door meeting on Kashmir today.

The fresh round of clashes coincides with the summoning of a UN Security Council meeting on Friday to discuss the deteriorating situation in the Himalayan valley.

The move by China, an all-weather ally of Pakistan, came after Islamabad writing a letter seeking a meeting.

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.

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi also disclosed the conversation, and he added that Trump said he will talk to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue.

On Thursday, Khan criticized the worldwide community's silence over Kashmir, asking whether the world would soon "witness another Srebrenica-type massacre & ethnic cleansing of Muslims", a reference to the 1990s Bosnian war.

"They are not alone, their voices have been heard, their plight, their hardship, their pain, their suffering, their occupation and the consequences of that occupation has been heard in the UNSC", she said.

Delhi has, however, disputed the claim, denying it took place. "This represents the worldwide community's consensus", said China's ambassador to the UN.

Authorities will begin restoring some telephone lines in India-administered Kashmir on Friday night, including in the main city of Srinagar where afternoon prayers went peacefully amid heavy security, a top state official said.

Lodhi underscored the fact that Pakistan "stands ready for a peaceful settlement of the dispute of Jammu and Kashmir".

"This meeting nullifies that Jammu and Kashmir is an internal matter for India". A clearly exasperated Khan further warned the global community that if it didn't act against India, there will be "severe repercussions and reactions in the Muslim world setting off radicalisation and cycles of violence".

He dismissed a 1948 Security Council resolution promising a United Nations -sponsored referendum on Kashmir's "final disposition", saying "every new agreement overtakes the past".

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has urged India and Pakistan to exercise "maximum restraint" and refrain from taking steps that could affect the status of Jammu and Kashmir. It will not end here. "I wish to tell Modi, that the revocation of Article 370 will make no difference to the people of Kashmir who are battle-hardened and will resist any oppression". In fact, the Pakistani and Chinese delegations made no secret that they were working in tandem at the U.N But even the Chinese intervention, and presentation outside the meeting, was not entirely to Pakistan's satisfaction.

After coming into power past year, Prime Minister Imran Khan has extended an olive branch to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi on multiple occasions, however, India never responded positively.
