Congress continues to play politics even after MEA denies Trump’s statement on Kashmir

Within just an hour of the statement, the MEA took to Twitter to clarify that no such request was made by PM Modi to President Donald Trump for mediation in Kashmir

The Ministry of External Affairs has categorically and in the strongest words denied the assertion by American President Donald Trump that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asked him to mediate in the Kashmir issue. However, despite the clarification, Congress seems to be hell-bent on playing politics over the sensitive issue.

Now, Congress MP K Suresh had given an Adjournment Motion Notice in Lok Sabha over “US President Donald Trump’s claim that PM Narendra Modi asked Trump to mediate in Kashmir”.

On a question on Kashmir, Imran Khan had said that the President of the most powerful country in the world is best suited to resolve the issue, and he requested Trump to mediate between India and Pakistan. To this Trump responded, “I was with Prime Minister Modi two weeks ago, we talked about this subject, and he actually said, ‘would you like to be a mediator, or arbitrator’, I said where, he said Kashmir”. He added, if I can help, I would love to be a mediator. Although he also said that it is impossible that two incredible countries with very smart leadership can’t solve a problem like this. But if you would want me to mediate or arbitrate, I would be willing to do.

However, the MEA had vehemently rejected this charge. Within just an hour of the statement, the MEA took to Twitter to clarify that no such request was made by PM Modi to President Donald Trump.

Interestingly, even the Whitehouse Press Release had no mention of the Kashmir issue or any request of mediation.

After the clarification, US Congressman from San Fransisco tweeted informing the public that he had apologised to the Indian Ambassador for the ‘amateurish and embarrassing mistake’ of President Donald Trump.
