ISLAMABAD - Donald Trump’s answer to Indian journalist question over cross border terrorism from Pakistan may have irked PM Modi.

During a press conference in New Delhi on Day 2 of his India visit, Donald Trump was asked what he thinks about the cross-border that India faces from Pakistan.

To this he said he discussed the issue of terrorism with PM Modi during his talks with him. India was expecting a snub for Pakistan on the issue of cross border terrorism.

Hours after holding bilateral talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Donald Trump once again floated his mediation offer, but the kept the context vague.

President Trump said he discussed Pakistan with PM Modi. "I have a good equation with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan too.

They (Pakistan) are working to control cross-border terrorism," President Trump said.

He however added that he is willing to help the two countries and mediate because he shares good equations with the two prime ministers. "If anything I can do to mediate, I will do," he said.

"We talked a lot about it today. I said I will do whatever I can do to help as my relationship with both gentlemen (PM Modi and Pakistan PM Imran Khan) is so good...Anything I can do to mediate/help, I'd do. They (Pakistan) are working on Kashmir," President Trump said.
