PARIS – Indian PM Narendra Modi admits Occupied Kashmir is a bilateral issue between Pakistan and India.
After repeatedly declaring occupied Kashmir an internal matter, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday accepted that Kashmir is a bilateral issue between nuclear-armed neighbours.
He said this in his meeting with the US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of G7 Summit in Biarritz, France. During the meeting, the two leaders discussed various issues including occupied Kashmir.
The Indian prime minister told President Trump that the issues between India and Pakistan are ‘bilateral’ and he does not want to trouble other countries in the world over Kashmir.
Tensions between India and Pakistan spiked after New Delhi abrogated provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution, evoking strong reactions from across the globe.
India had categorically told the international community that the scrapping of Article 370 was an internal matter but Narendra Modi today accepted Kashmir as a bilateral issue.
