New Delhi, January 23
Pakistan’s attempt to create an alarmist situation in Kashmir failed and the global community understands its double standards, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said on Thursday.
The MEA also said there is no role for any third party in the Kashmir issue which has to be resolved bilaterally with Pakistan and the onus is on Islamabad to create an environment for engagement.
The ministry’s assertion came in response to US President Donald Trump’s fresh offer to “help” in resolving the Kashmir issue.
“There is no role for any third party in the Kashmir issue,” MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said when asked about Trump’s offer.
“Our position has been clear and consistent on Kashmir... It is a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan,” he said.
Addressing the media with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in Davos on Tuesday, Trump said that the US was watching the developments related to Kashmir “very closely” and repeated his offer to “help” resolve the matter.—PTI
