ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Foreign Office responds over US President Donald Trump's offer to Islamabad and New Delhi over the Occupied Kashmir dispute between two nuclear armed rivals.

The Foreign Office spokesperson said that the matter should be resolved according to the resolutions passed by the United Nations.

When asked about United States President Donald Trump 's recent reiteration of the offer to mediate between Islamabad and New Delhi, Dr Faisal said that India was "not ready".

"We have always been ready for bilateral dialogue as well [as mediation] and we made many attempts [to hold talks].

"We have always maintained that every issue can be solved through dialogue. Now let's see what happens."

He further said: "Jammu and Kashmir's struggle is a [...] process. It is not an event. This process is ongoing and is moving forward.

"Tomorrow, the prime minister is going to Azad Kashmir and has a policy statement for the people there. There are many [other] steps under consideration and we will inform you as they unfold. Right now, nothing is final."

He also clarified that "no background dialogue between India and Pakistan" was underway.
