On Monday, in a meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump, the latter said that the Kashmir issue had been discussed between the two leaders who are in France to attend the G7 Summit.
Donald Trump has repeatedly offered to mediate between India and Pakistan on the Kashmir issue but India has maintained that the dispute between the two nations is a bilateral issue.
In Biarritz, France, Donald Trump admitted that he and PM Modi had discussed Kashmir.
PM Modi reiterated India’s stance on Kashmir as he sat next to Trump. Reaffirming that Kashmir is a bilateral issue, Prime Minister Narendra Modi categorically rejected any scope for a third party mediation between India and Pakistan on Kashmir, saying the two countries can discuss and resolve all issues bilaterally and “we don’t want to trouble any third country.”
