However opposite happened, Except China, no one favored Pakistan and said that they should solve it bilaterally.

The meeting took place behind closed doors with only the five permanent members and the 10 non-permanent members attending it. India has categorically told the international community that its move to scrap Article 370 of the Constitution removing the special status to Jammu and Kashmir was an internal matter and has also advised Pakistan to accept the reality.

The 10 non-permanent members who are elected for a two-year term by the UN General Assembly are Belgium, Cote d’Ivoire, Dominican Republic, Equatorial Guinea, Germany, Indonesia, Kuwait, Peru, Poland and South Africa.
