The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) will meet on Tuesday to discuss the situation in Indian occupied Kashmir.

The meeting has been called by China and Pakistan together for the second time in a year. Last time the council met and debated the issue in August, after India revoked Article 370, ending the autonomy granted to the disputed Kashmir valley.

“In view of the seriousness of the situation and the risk of further escalation, China would like to echo the request of Pakistan, and request a briefing of the Council … on the situation of Jammu and Kashmir,” China’s UN mission wrote in a note to council members, reports Reuters.

Its been almost the fourth month since Kashmir has been under complete lock down, after India scrapped the special status granted to the Muslim-majority area.
