Irked India furiously responds over US President Donald Trump’s statement along with PM Khan

NEW DELHI - Irked India furiously responds over US President Donald Trump’s statement along with PM Imran Khan.

India's foreign ministry on Monday completely rejected the United States President Donald Trump had been asked by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to mediate the Kashmir conflict with Pakistan.

Trump made the claim while speaking from the Oval Office where he was hosting Prime Minister Imran Khan.

“We have seen President Trump's remarks to the press that he is ready to mediate, if requested by India and Pakistan, on the Kashmir issue. No such request has been made by Prime Minister Modi to the US President,” said Raveesh Kumar, official spokesman of India's Ministry of External Affairs.

"It has been India's consistent position that all outstanding issues with Pakistan are discussed only bilaterally."
