We will not oppose holding of UNSC meeting on Kashmir issue: Russian Envoy in UN


Russian envoy to the United Nations (UN) Dmitry Polyanskiy has stated that Russia does not object to holding of United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting requested by Pakistan to discuss India’s move of revoking the special status of occupied Kashmir.
“Moscow doesn’t object to holding such a meeting, but the matter should be discussed behind closed doors,” Polyanskiy said while speaking to reporters.
The statement came after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov spoke to Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.
The two foreign ministers discussed the situation in the Himalayan region amid worsening relations between Pakistan and India after New Delhi decided to unilaterally change the legal status of Kashmir, according to the statement.
