AJK President urges Modi to respond positively on Trump’s Kashmir offer


ISLAMABAD (DNA) – Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) President Sardar Masood Khan on Saturday urged Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to respond positively to the mediation offer made by US President Donald Trump on the Kashmir issue during the recent visit of Prime Minister Imran Khan to the United States.

Addressing a press conference here along with a parliamentary delegation from United Kingdom (UK), Sardar Masood said the Indian prime minister should show flexibility and seriously consider Trump offer to resolve the long-standing dispute between the two neighboring countries.

“It was the right time for both Pakistan and India to find out a political solution of the Kashmir issue as international powers were ready to play their due role for ending grave human rights violations in the area”, he added.

On July 22, President Donald Trump offered to mediate the decades-long Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan, a move that would signal a shift in long-standing US policy that the issue must be solved bilaterally.
