Pakistan Says Three Soldiers Die in Kashmir Clash

Pakistan Says Three Soldiers Die in Kashmir Clash

Earlier this week, Pakistan requested a UN Security Council meeting to discuss the fate of Jammu and Kashmir.

Eight Indian and Pakistani military personnel have been killed amid intense skirmishes along the fragile Line of Control border between India and Pakistan on Thursday, the Pakistani military and local officials have reported.

"Intermittent exchange of fire continues", Ghafoor tweeted. The Indian Army said there were no Indian casualties.

Cross-border skirmishes between Indian and Pakistani armies have killed at least five people, the Pakistani military said on Thursday.

In the wake of the Centre's decision to revoke the special status under Article 370 for Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcate the State, Pakistan has been trying to draw attention to the issue.

Holding black flags and chanting slogans against India, about 3,000 Pakistanis rallied about a mile (2 kilometers) from the Indian embassy in Islamabad, urging the world community to take notice of human rights abuses in the disputed Muslim-majority Himalayan region.

"As Pakistan has vowed not to let the move go unanswered, another India-Pakistan war is now all the more real a possibility", it added.

Nuclear-armed India and Pakistan have fought two of their three wars over the disputed territory of Kashmir.

According to United Nations records, the last time "the Security Council addressed the dispute between India and Pakistan over the territories of Jammu and Kashmir" under agenda item "The India-Pakistan question" was in 1964-65.

If China were to raise human rights issues as - Pakistan had requested - at the consultation it has requested, it could prove to be an embarrassment for it as it has come under worldwide criticism for its treatment of the Muslim minority in its Uighur province, where large numbers of them have been put in camps.

Pakistan has taken the matter to the UN Security Council, where it relies on China's backing.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday visited Pakistan-controlled Kashmir amid the ongoing tension with India after the latter scrapped the special status of Indian-controlled Kashmir. Citizens of other Indian regions had no right to buy land in Kashmir.

He said the issue related to changes in a temporary provision of the Constitution of India and was the sole prerogative of the country.

The consultations on Wednesday were on Syria and Central Africa, but China also brought up the request for scheduling a consultation on Kashmir.

The decision to mark India's independence day as black day was taken at the National Security Committee meeting, presided by the prime minister, last week in the wake of the Indian move to revoke Art¬icle 370 that gave occupied Kashmir an autonomous status and to split the held Valley into two territories. The Chinese government has said it will watch over its interests.

Another resolution also calls upon both sides to "refrain from making any statements and from doing or causing to be done or permitting any acts which might aggravate the situation".
