Pakistan Prime Minister meets Donald Trump: US Ready to Mediate on Kashmir

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan met US President Donald Trump on Monday during his 3-days official visit to USA. Welcoming the Pakistan's Prime Minister, the US President remarked: “It’s my great honour to have the very popular (and by the way great athlete, one of the greatest) Prime Minister of Pakistan.”

Trump touted Pakistan's role in fomenting progress in the US-Taliban talks in recent weeks and said he believes Pakistan "is going to help us out to extricate ourselves" from the war in Afghanistan.

At the White House meeting on Monday, Mr Trump also offered to mediate the Indian-Pakistani conflict in Kashmir. He said that he was making the offer after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi requested that he "mediate or arbitrate" the 70-year old territory dispute between the two nations.

It may be added that since Donald Trump took office in 2017, his administration has adopted a hard line against Pakistan, accusing it of supporting Islamist militants and misleading the US over the issue - charges Islamabad denies.

However, this meeting seems to have softened US stance about Pakistan.
