India denies Donald Trump's claim that PM Modi asked him to mediate in Kashmir dispute

The Ministry of External Affairs said it had consistently held the position that ‘all outstanding issues with Pakistan are discussed only bilaterally’.

The Ministry of External Affairs on Monday denied United States President Donald Trump’s claim that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had requested him to mediate in the Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan.

Trump, speaking to reporters after meeting Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in the White House, said: “I was with Prime Minister Modi two weeks ago and we talked about this subject and he actually said ‘Would you like to be a mediator or arbitrator?’ I said: ‘Where?’ He said: ‘Kashmir’. Because this has been going on for many many years. I was surprised how long it has been going on.”

Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said Modi had made no such request. “It has been India’s consistent position that all outstanding issues with Pakistan are discussed only bilaterally,” Kumar said. “Any engagement with Pakistan would require an end to cross-border terrorism. The Shimla Agreement [and] the Lahore Declaration provide the basis to resolve all issues between India [and] Pakistan bilaterally.”

An unidentified spokesperson for the US State Department said Kashmir was a “bilateral issue” for India and Pakistan to discuss, but added that the US was ready to assist the two countries. “...the Trump administration welcomes Pakistan and India sitting down and the United States stands ready to assist,” the spokesperson told ANI.

13. That 42% doesn't read, they only watch Fox

That is why he loves the uneducated, they are so stupid that they cheered him when he said it, maybe nott understanding that they were being insulted.

5. Donny Two Scoops telling a fib!?!

I didn't see that coming. Modi said Kashmir and Donny thought this will be easy, they're arguing over a sweater. He's an imbecile.

7. The Orange Intruder is staring at Prime Minister Imran Khan as if he has drooled gravy on himself.

Is he hard at work thinking how superior he is to brown people?

He doesn't have a decent cell anywhere in his skin-covered ocean of Big Macs floating in milk shakes.

8. "I was surprised how long this has been going on."

Surprised he didn't preface this idiocy with his
usual " Most people don't know this but..."

This is bad even for him. Shambling, disheveled, demented wreck.

At least he didn't suggest nuclear annihilation.

They affect our national interest by making us a laughing stock of the world.

16. Didn't Need India to "Deny" Anything.

I knew it was a lie while Trump was opening his fat mouth about it.
