The U.N. Security Council has passed 3 resolutions addressing the crisis in India and Pakistan.

Resolutions 2.2 and 2.3 call for the appearance of a representative from the Pakistan cabinet to answer questions in the council. Members want to know if the governments are open to peacekeeping forces in their respective nations and want an update on the situation in Kashmir.

Resolution 2.4 addresses humanitarian aid and looks forward to peace in Kashmir. The resolution plans for peacekeepers called "U.N. personnel" and some will provide humanitarian aid and translation services. The plan calls for personnel to be funded by the permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and members of the General Assembly. Only 75 personnel are currently available.

Personnel will be first stationed in Kashmir and more will be deployed once training has finished.
