WASHINGTON: United States President Donald Trump has offered again to mediate between India and Pakistan on the issue of Kashmir.
Answering to reporter’s query at the White House about his previous comments related to mediation on Kashmir issue, Trump said, “It is really up to PM Modi. I met with Prime Minister Khan, I got along great. I think they are fantastic people, both Khan and Modi. I would imagine they can get along very well.”
He added, “If they wanted somebody to intervene on Kashmir issue or to help them and I spoke with Pakistan about that, and I spoke, frankly, to India about it. But that’s been going on, that battle, for a long time.”
“Have they accepted the offer or not,” Trump explained when asked about India’s rejection of his mediation offer. When asked how he would “want to resolve the Kashmir issue”, Trump said, “If I can, if they wanted me to, I would certainly intervene.”
Trump said, “It is really up to PM Modi. I met with Prime Minister Khan, I got along great. I think they are fantastic people, both Khan and Modi. I would imagine they can get along very well.”
He added, “If they wanted somebody to intervene on Kashmir issue or to help them and I spoke with Pakistan about that, and I spoke, frankly, to India about it. But that’s been going on, that battle, for a long time.”
US President said that it was up to India and Pakistan to resolve the Kashmir dispute but he is ready to assist if both neighbouring countries want him to help in resolving the decades-old issue.
The US president had initiated political chaos in India during the meeting with Prime Minister Imran by claiming that Modi had asked him to mediate in the Kashmir dispute which India denied later.
He praised Prime Minister Imran by adding that he got great along with him.
