I would love to be a mediator on Kashmir: Donald Trump

U.S. President says PM Modi sought his help during their recent meeting in Japan
U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday offered to be a “mediator” between India and Pakistan on the Kashmir issue as he met Prime Minister Imran Khan at the White House. “If I can help, I would love to be a mediator. If I can do anything to help, let me know,” Mr. Trump said. He said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi broached the subject during their meeting in Osaka, Japan, last month. “I was with Prime Minister Modi two weeks ago, and talking of the subject, and he said, ‘Would you like to be a mediator?’ And I asked where, and he said Kashmir. I said if I could mediate, I will help… I would love to help on Kashmir.” In New Delhi, the government denied Mr. Modi had requested Mr. Trump to mediate. “We have seen [Mr. Trump’s] remarks that he is ready to mediate, if requested by India & Pakistan, on the Kashmir issue. No such request has been made by Mr. Modi to the U.S. President,” said MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar.
