Donald Trump Says PM Modi Asked Him to Mediate in Kashmir Dispute, India Counters US President

President Donald Trump left India stunned when he offered to mediate in Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan. The foreign ministry has denied US President Donald Trump’s claim that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked him to “mediate” on Kashmir. President Trump, who hosted Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan at the White House on Monday, said, “If I can help, I would love to be a mediator”.

Donald Trump told Imran Khan, “If I can help in the Kashmir issue, I will help,” Trump said during the meeting. “If I could meditate in the Kashmir issue, I would love to help. I would love to come to Pakistan if invited as we both our countries can play an important role in Kashmir dispute.”

Imran Khan reportedly accepted Trump’s offer and said, “Yes, it would be in the benefit of billions of people if you do so to solve the long dispute between the two countries.”

Responding to Trump’s claim External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, “We have seen President Trump’s remarks to the press that he is ready to mediate if requested by India and Pakistan, on the Kashmir issue. No such request has been made by Prime Minister to the US President. Any engagement with Pakistan would require an end to cross border terrorism. The Simla Agreement and the Lahore Declaration provide the basis to resolve all issues between India and Pakistan bilaterally.”

Minutes after Donald Trump’s statement, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said that Donald Trump had no clue about what he was talking about.

President Trump and Prime Minister Modi had met last month on the sidelines of G20 Summit in Osaka, Japan.
