WASHINGTON - Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday brought up the issue of Kashmir when he met US President Donald Trump at the White House.

It has been reported that Trump offered to negotiate in the matter and also made a completely false claim of being requested to do so by India , India media has claimed.

Imran brought up the Kashmir issue during his discussions with Trump and the US President, according to Reuters, responded by saying he is ready to act as a mediator. Trump, however, went on to claim that the request for mediation in the matter had also been made by India , which is completely false. "I was with PM Modi two weeks ago. We were talking about this subject and he actually said 'would you like to be a mediator or arbitrator?' I said 'where?'

He said 'Kashmir because this is been going on many many years.' I was surprised how long it has been going on. I think they would like to see result. You (Imran Khan) would like to see result. I can help. I would love to be mediator," Trump reportedly said.

India has always maintained that the Kashmir issue is for India and Pakistan to resolve alone and no third country should get itself involved.

India has also maintained that peace talks between the two countries can only happen when Pakistan stop sheltering and supporting terrorists.
