He has said that Kashmir’s decision to mediate is in the hands of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
On Thursday, when asked about India’s denial over arbitration on Kashmir from Trump, he said that I recently met the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan. We have a good conversation. I think they (Modi and Imran) are the best people. I think both of them will work well together. When asked by Trump whether he would like to resolve the Kashmir issue, he said, “If I want Indo-Pak, I will definitely intervene on this issue.”
