WASHINGTON (Diya TV) — President Trump and Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan met at the White House to discuss the ongoing Afghanistan conflict and restoring $1.3 billion in aid from the U.S. to Pakistan. 

During a press conference, Mr. Trump mentioned Kashmir and said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked him to help with the dispute and he “would love to be a mediator.”

Later, India, the U.S. and Pakistan clarified their stances. 

The U.S. State Department tweeted they recognize Kashmir is a bilateral issue for Pakistan and India and “the United States stands ready to assist.”

India’s External Affairs spokesperson tweeted that Prime Minister Modi did not request President Trump to mediate between India and Pakistan on the Kashmir issue, further stating there are existing agreements in place “to resolve all issues between India & Pakistan bilaterally.”

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 @narendramodi to US President. It has been India’s consistent position…1/2— Raveesh Kumar (@MEAIndia) July 22, 2019

And Khan in an interview with Fox News said the ISI, his country’s intelligence service, gave the CIA “the information” to track down Osama bin Laden “through the phone connection.”
