Trump Claims Modi Asked Him to Mediate Kashmir Conflicts; India Denies

US President Donald Trump created a fuss in India by offering to mediate in the Kashmir issue.

Ahead of his talks with Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan, Trump said he “would love to go to Pakistan, if invited”.

During an interview in the White House Oval Trump claimed that he was with Prime Minister Modi two weeks ago and they had a conversation regarding this subject.

“Modi actually asked me ‘Would you like to be a mediator or arbitrator’”, said Trump.

Trump further said that he confusingly asked India’s PM Modi ‘Where’, to which Modi replied ‘Kashmir’.

In response to a question during his meeting, Trump said, “I wonder how long this has been going on. If I can help, I would love to be a mediator. If I can do anything to help, let me know.”

Even though Imran Khan welcomed Mr. Trump’s remarks, India was quick to deny Trumps claims that PM Modi asked him to be mediator on the decades-long Kashmir dispute between Pakistan and India.


In a series of tweets, the official spokesperson of Ministry of external Affairs, Ravish Kumar denied the claim made by the US President.

The buzz continues as the US congressman, Brad Sherman said that he had apologized to the Indian ambassador to the US, over the US President’s comments. “I just apologized to Indian Ambassador Harsh Shringla for Trump’s amateurish and embarrassing mistake.”

Sherman mentions in a post on social media platform Twitter that PM Modi would never suggest to Trump to play a mediator or arbitrator.
