No scope for third party role in Kashmir, says India

Gokhale says PM made this clear to Trump at Osaka meet
India reiterated on Thursday that there is no scope for third party intervention in the Kashmir issue.
Announcing the details of Narendra Modi’s visit to the U.S. from September 21 to 27, Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said the Prime Minister would meet U.S. President Donald Trump in New York and Houston and pitch for a greater role for India at the international level. “The Prime Minister has made it very clear in front of the media during his meeting with President Trump in Osaka. India does not see a role for anybody in this matter,” Mr. Gokhale said.
Mr. Trump hinted at his role while highlighting the reduced India-Pakistan tension in recent days.
He has said that a big announcement is expected during the “Howdy, Modi!” event, which, however, was not confirmed by the External Affairs Ministry on Thursday. Mr. Modi’s special outreach with the leaders of 16 U.S. energy majors such as Exxonmobil, Total S.A and Dominion Energy is expected to be on September 21, which will be followed by a CEO roundtable on September 25. Mr. Gokhale said Mr. Modi would highlight India’s aspiration for shaping global political and socio-economic agenda. Apart from the official meet with Mr. Trump, Mr. Modi’s other confirmed meeting will be with Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in New York. He will hold interactions with a large number of leaders from Latin America and the Caribbean. Apart from the speech at the UN General Assembly, he will address the Climate Summit on September 23 and participate in a special leaders’ dialogue on terrorism co-organised by the King of Jordan.
“Our intention this year is to participate in all the plurilaterals to showcase our achievements in climate change, universal health coverage and sanitation. Multilateralism is at the centre of global politics and should remain so,” said Mr. Gokhale elaborating on India’s agenda for interacting with the world community.
