No question of mediation on Kashmir: Rajnath Singh in Lok Sabha

There was no discussion on Kashmir in the meeting between US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Japan recently and there is no question of any mediation on the issue, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said in Lok Sabha on Wednesday.

Amid a walkout of proceedings by the opposition which has been demanding a statement from the prime minister since Tuesday, Singh said in the House that mediation on the Kashmir issue is also ruled out as it is a question of national pride for India.

“There was no discussion on Kashmir during the meeting between the Prime Minister and US President Trump in June. There is no question of any mediation on Kashmir issue,” he said.

Singh also asserted that when India talks to Pakistan, it will not be limited to the issue of Kashmir, but also include Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK).

US President Trump had on Monday claimed that Prime Minister Modi had asked him to play the role of a mediator on Kashmir.
