China has supported Pakistan’s request for a UN Security Council meeting to discuss developments in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, according to a letter sent by the Chinese mission to the council presidency Wednesday evening.

“China asks the Security Council to hold closed-door consultations on the issue of Pakistan and India on the afternoon of August 15 or the morning of August 16 and peacemaking processes to brief on developments over the former state of Jammu and Kashmir,” the letter said, according to Russia Today.

Thus, as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, China supported a request from Pakistan earlier this week to the UN Security Council to discuss the issue.

“Given the gravity of the situation and the danger of escalating tension, China supports the need for the Security Council to hold open or closed door discussions at least on this issue,” the Chinese message continued.

The letter noted that China “does not object to closed-door consultations first, in response to the demands of all parties.”

For his part, said Dmitry Poliansky, Acting Permanent Representative of Russia to the United Nations, Moscow does not object to discuss developments on the former state of Jammu and Kashmir, India, but these consultations should be closed.

It is up to Poland to take up the presidency of the UN Council in August.
