Modi really feels he has Kashmir matter under control: Trump
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has again refused a third-party mediation in the Kashmir issue, insisting that it is a bilateral issue and must be resolved accordingly.
Modi met with US President Donald Trump at the sidelines of the G7 Summit in France, where Trump told the media that he has decided to back off on Kashmir mediation after Modi’s insistence.
“We spoke last night about Kashmir, Prime Minister [Modi] really feels he has it under control. They speak with Pakistan and I’m sure that they will be able to do something that will be very good,” Trump announced on Monday.
According to Modi, the two countries can discuss and resolve all issues bilaterally and he doesn’t want to trouble any third country.
“All issues between India and Pakistan are bilateral in nature, that is why we don’t bother any other country regarding them,” Trump quoted the Indian premier.
“India and Pakistan were together before 1947 and I’m confident that we can discuss our problems and solve them together,” PM Modi told Trump.
It´s been 21 days since the people of Jammu & Kashmir had their freedom and civil liberties curtailed, owing to a communication blackout in the occupied Kashmir.
On August 5, Modi´s Hindu-nationalist government revoked the autonomy of the Muslim-majority territory where tens of thousands of people have been martyred in an uprising against Indian occupation since 1989.
