New Delhi: China has made a fresh pitch to raise the Kashmir issue in a closed-door meeting of the UN Security Council (UNSC) in New York on Wednesday, but the attempt is likely to fail as all other member countries of the body are set to oppose it.

French diplomatic sources said France has noted the request of a UNSC member to raise the Kashmir issue once again in the powerful body and it is going to oppose it like it did on the previous occasion.

 

The closed-door meeting of the UNSC has been called to discuss an issue relating to an African country. China has made a request to deliberate on the Kashmir issue under the agenda of ‘Any Other Business Points’.

Sources said France's position has not changed and is very clear: the Kashmir issue must be settled bilaterally. This has been stated on several occasions and will continue to be reiterate to partners in the UN Security Council, they added.

Last month, France, U.S., U.K. and Russia foiled an attempt by China to discuss Kashmir in the UNSC.

China has been critical of India's reorganisation of Jammu & Kashmir.
