Modi name echoed in the white house on 22 July has brought shockwave in India.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is in the USA on his official visit, met President Donal Trump on Monday.
The meeting was primarily focused on the Afghanistan issue and the financial crisis Pakistan facing.
But the whole attention got diverted on India Pakistan.
US President Trump mentioned in his statement that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked him to be an arbitrator on Kashmir issue
His exact words were
“I was with Prime Minister Narendra Modi two weeks ago and we talked about this subject and he actually said ‘Would you like to be a mediator or arbitrator’, I said ‘Where’, He said ‘Kashmir’. Because this has been going on for many, many years… I think they would like to see it resolved and you (Imran Khan) would like to see it resolved. If I can help, I would love to be a mediator,”
He was mentioning about the meeting that had happened between two of them in Japan at G 20 Summit.
PM Imran Khan on his first visit to America had gone along with Pakistan Army Chief General Bajwa.
This has happened never before, and many are speculating that he is with him to guide.
As many scholars and intellectuals who follow international issues know that in Pakistan real power exists in the army’s hand.
And PM Imran is the army’s choice and has full support from them.
Fearing getting blacklisted under FATF (Financial Action Task Force) Pakistan last week starts taking actions against internationally banned terrorist living in under their patronage.
That India called an eyewash exercise. But Trump appreciated it and also claimed that under his guidance Pakistan has taken such steps.
India has never sought any mediator relating to Kashmir issue.
In response, late in the evening Indian foreign ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted
“We have seen POTUS’s remarks to the press that he is ready to mediate if requested by India & Pakistan, on Kashmir issue. No such request has been made by PM Narendra Modi to US President. It has been India’s consistent position”
