Talking to reporters at the White House, Donald Trump said he would discuss this possibility over the weekend with Indian PM Narendra Modi who are scheduled to meet at the G7 summit in Biarritz, France, this weekend.

“Kashmir is a very complicated place. You have Hindus and you have the Muslims and I wouldn’t say they get along so great,” President Trump said. “I will do the best I can to mediate.”

The US leader first offered to mediate between India and Pakistan over Kashmir at a White House news conference during his meeting with Pakistan PM Imran Khan on July 22. India, however, declined the offer, saying that it wanted no external assistance for talks with Pakistan on Kashmir or any other issue.

“I really get along with both (Mr Modi and Mr Khan) of them. As you know, Prime Minister Khan was here just recently. I will be with PM Modi … over the weekend in France,” Mr Trump said at his Oval Office press talk.

“I think, we are helping (resolve the tense) situation” between India and Pakistan, he added. Mr Trump said there’s a “tremendous problem” between the two countries. “It’s a complicated situation. A lot has to do with religion. Religion is a complicated subject.”
