Security Council on Tuesday to extend an arms embargo on Iran before it expires in October, prompting Russia to slam Washington’s policy toward Tehran as like “putting a knee” to the country’s neck. Earlier this month, the United States circulated a draft resolution on the measure to the 15-member council, but council veto-powers Russia and China have already signaled their opposition to the move.

Members of UN Security Council except China agrees JandK is bilateral issue: India's representative to UN

India's permanent representative to the United Nations, TS Tirumurti spoke to ANI on Pakistan and China raking JandK issue even after a year in UN. TS Tirumurti said that Pakistan's efforts have not received any traction in the United Nations Security Council even if Pakistan persists. He said, "Attempts by Pakistan to try an internationalise something which is a bilateral issue is not something new. There has been no formal meeting of Security Council on India-Pakistan issue since November 1965. What came up recently was a closed door and completely informal meeting. There was no outcome in this meeting but in the Security Council practically every country except for China underlined the fact that it is a bilateral issue and should be dealt between India and Pakistan. Pakistan's efforts have not received any traction in the United Nations Security Council even if Pakistan persists there are no takers here in the United Nations."
