Mirwaiz welcomes Trumps offer to mediate on Kashmir issue

Srinagar, Welcoming US President Donald Trump's offer to mediate between India and Pakistan on Kashmir issue 'if mediation was required', moderate Hurriyat Conference (HC) chairman Mirwaiz Moulvi Omar Farooq said the people of Kashmir want an early resolution to the lingering conflict between the two neighbouring countries. 'Being the most affected party, people of Kashmir want an early resolution to the lingering Kashmir conflict. Been urging for dialogue at all levels. Every effort, pushing India and Pakistan in that direction @POTUS is welcome by the people of J&K,' the Mirwaiz wrote on micro-blogging site twitter. After a meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, Mr Trump on Monday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during the G20 summit in Osaka, sought his help in resolving the Kashmir issue. However, in Parliament, External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar on Tuesday asserted that no request to mediate on Kashmir issued was made by Mr Modi to the US President. Though, the opposition political parties have asked PM Modi to clear the air on the issue.
