Trump, Modi, G7, Kashmir, India, USAs the offer of mediation in the Kashmir issue continues, the U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to discuss the matter with Indian Prime Ministers Narendra Modi at the sidelines of the G-7 Summit in France on Saturday.

According to reports, the conversation is likely to steer towards human rights violation and continued regional tensions in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) territory since the abrogation of Article 370 by New Delhi on August 5.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, the White House cited that President Trump’s offer for meditation stands if the parties involved would seek assistance over the issue. Washington is keeping a close watch over the continuously evolving status of Kashmir issue, it added.

Ahead of the G-7 Summit in Biarritz, a senior U.S. administrator stated that Washington calls for restraint from New Delhi and Islamabad in the Kashmir issue and urges the neighbouring nations to keep the rhetoric around peaceful course of action.

Clearing its stance on the matter, India has categorically stressed that Jammu and Kashmir is the country’s internal matter and no international laws have been violated during its recent decision to bifurcate the territory into two – Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir. The international concern regarding the matter is unwarranted, it added.

Earlier last week, China has called upon a closed consultation with the United Nation’s Security Council in relation to a letter forwarded by Pakistan stating concern over India’s stance on Kashmir. Nevertheless, the Council vetoed against China-Pakistan in favour of India.
