During the meeting, China expressed serious concerns on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, human rights abuses and unilateral actions with regards to the situation.
Though an official word from UNSC is awaited, Pakistan's Permanent Representative to the UN Maleeha Lodhi said the convening of the session confirms that Kashmir is not the internal matter of India; Lodhi said India tried its best to stop the current UNSC session.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that bilateralism on Kashmir is buried as UNSC session attests that it is an international issue concerning international security and peace.
He also congratulated the people of Pakistan for the ongoing developments regarding Kashmir as well as the media coverage in this regard.
New Delhi had abolished the special status of the disputed region through a rush decree a week earlier.
Talking to reporters, the Polish Ambassador Joanna Wronecka, who is the president of the Security Council for the month of August, told that the Council is likely to hold consultations on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.
She said the request for consultations was made by China, a permanent member of the Security Council.
Pakistan had called for the Security Council meeting on Monday when Pakistan’s UN Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi delivered a letter to the Security Council President from Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, which contained the meeting request.
