India ignores Trump's mediation offer

New Delhi, Jan 22 (TIWN) India on Wednesday ignored US President Donald Trump's yet another attempt to offer mediation with Pakistan on Kashmir.

President Trump on Tuesday at World Economic Forum (WEF) summit in Davos had revealed that he and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan were "working together on some borders" and discussing the Kashmir issue. 

"We''re working together on some borders, and we''re talking about Kashmir and the relation to what''s going on with Pakistan and India. And if we can help, we certainly will be helping. And we''ve been watching that and following it very, very closely," Trump had said, ahead of his meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on the sidelines of the WEF summit in Davos.  Officials of the Ministry of External Affairs said President Trump''s offer wasn''t new and that India''s response isn''t going to be new either. "India has always rejected third party role in its bilateral relationship with Pakistan, including several offers of mediation made by President Trump," an official said.  The US President who is facing an impeachment trial at home is visiting India in February. 

Two days ago, Khan had tweeted that "there is an urgent need for the UNSC to insist India allow UNMOGIP (United Nations Military Observer Group in India) return" to the Line of Control in Kashmir.
