India denies PM Modi asked Trump to mediate in Kashmir conflict

India has denied that PM Narendra Modi asked US President Donald Trump to me3diate in the the longstanding Kashmir conflict with Pakistan.

The Indian foreign ministry said “no such request” was made, adding that all issues with Pakistan were “discussed only bilaterally”.Mr Trump’s claim he had been asked came as he hosted Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan at the White House.Both India and Pakistan claim all of Kashmir, but control only parts of it.

The neighbours have fought two wars over the Muslim-majority territory, and tensions flared again in February leading to cross-border air strikes.Afterwards they spoke to reporters addressing a variety of subjects.
