The Latest: UN Security Council to discuss KashmirThe U.N. Security Council has scheduled a rare meeting on Kashmir in response to requests by China and Pakistan following India’s revocation of the region’s special constitutional status and downgrading of its statehood to a territory. Poland holds the rotating presidency of the U.N.’s most powerful body and its spokesman said Thursday that the closed consultations will take place Friday morning. U.N. officials said the council session may be its first on Kashmir since the late 1990s, or possibly since the 1971 India-Pakistan war.
