A Russian Foreign Ministry statement said that Moscow "emphasised the need for de-escalation of tensions, and that there is no alternative to resolve differences between Pakistan and India except bilaterally through political and diplomatic means".

A lawyer for a Kashmiri newspaper editor says India's top court has heard petitions challenging the revoked status and lockdown in Indian-administered Kashmir.

FM Qureshi said New Delhi was bent on carrying out a genocide of Muslims to achieve its aim of changing the demographic composition of Kashmir.

India and Pakistan have fought two wars over Kashmir, which was divided between them when they declared independence from the United Kingdom in 1947.

A former diplomat who represented India at the United Nations pointed out the closed discussion will have to first address whether the current letter from China is suitable to be discussed under "India-Pakistan Questions", a title which was used to discuss Kashmir since 1947-'48 till 1971.

In Sindh, several programs including rallies were held to demonstrate solidarity with the Kashmiri people on Indian Independence Day as the Black Day.

On the first Independence Day since the revocation of Kashmir's special status, security restrictions in the city were even more stringent.

Pakistan said today three of its soldiers and five Indian troops were killed in a cross-border exchange of fire in the contested Kashmir region, one of the deadliest clashes between the rival armies this year. While the Shaksgam Tract itself does not pose an immediate military threat to Indian military forces in Ladakh, connectivity between the various Chinese group armies in Tibet and Xinjiang is an important aspect of military operations against Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand. Can India exert pressure on the Shaksgam Tract (north of the Siachen Glacier), at key infrastructure in Aksai Chin (like highway 219), or even Chinese infrastructure in Pakistan-administered Kashmir?

Pakistan chose to observe its Independence Day as an event to mark solidarity with Kashmiris after the India scrapped special powers of the region under its occupation.

Council President Joanna Wronecka's press officer Bartiomiej Wybacz told IANS on Thursday, "I can confirm that closed consultations on Kashmir have been scheduled for tomorrow at 10 a.m". However, India has made it clear that it is an internal matter of the country and does not violate the Line of Control or any border.

It said this is a big success for Kashmir and Pakistan. "Pakistan Army responded effectively".

"Article 370 should have been removed a long time ago, but better late than never", New Delhi businessman Amarjeet Singh said Wednesday outside the Red Fort.

The Jamaat-i-Islami said that it had staged more than 12 rallies across the city. The sweeping changes in Kashmir come three months after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won a general election in which they pledged to revoke Kashmir's special status.

The prince, or maharaja, agreed to have Kashmir become part of India under duress.

Associated Press writers Aijaz Hussain in Srinagar, India, Mariya Amrayeva in New Delhi and Ahmed Munir in Islamabad contributed.
