China, which withdrew its request to hold discussions in the UN Security Council on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, has said that discussions on the issue are going on at the Council. It is learnt that Pakistan’s all-weather ally Beijing had called for the issue of Jammu and Kashmir to be discussed in the 15-nation Council on Tuesday after Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi wrote a letter to the Council on December 12 on the situation in the region. The matter was expected to be discussed in the Security Council Consultations Room under “other matters” during closed consultations Tuesday afternoon. However, due to subsequent developments ahead of the UNSC consultations, it became clear that the matter would not come up for discussion as earlier planned.
