President Trump wanted to involve himself, so it seems in the disputes between India and Pakistan, but it has become clear that after meeting Prime Minister Modi, the meeting went well and the message was, “they have things under control.” The persistent question about his “offer” to mediate was raised as it had been raised before. For now, the US leader is in the position of building relationships with the respected leaders of these countries and only offering support at their request. However, he US President did admit that he discussed Kashmir at G7 but when pressed he seemed to be more diplomatic by saying, “we spoke last night about Kashmir, Prime Minister (Modi) really feels he has it under control. They speak with Pakistan and I am sure that they will be able to do something that will be very good.”
The do not want to trouble any third country, according to reports from Trump. Mr Modi was his polite self and suggest that they can find solutions through discussions. Mr Modi did say that he spoke to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan when the latter was elected and they discussed combatting poverty in the region as a project that they can work on together. The discussion on Article 370 of the Constitution to withdraw Jammu and Kashmir special status in in the Indian view, an internal matter and that Pakistan will accept the reality. For now, Mr Trump should allow these two mature states to take care of their matters on their own.
