India became a crucial matter of discussion in the dialogue between Pakistan PM Imran Khan and US President Donald Trump, wherein the latter in an absurd claim said that he has been asked by PM Modi to be the mediator over the Kashmir issue with Pakistan. The conversation has been stirring a lot of controversy and reactions. Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi took to Twitter to post against India.
Read his tweet here:
This isn't the first time that Shahid Afridi has waded into India-Pakistan matters. Little over a year back, he had tweeted insulting India.
Sitting alongside Trump in the Oval Office, the Pakistan PM Imran Khan raised the Kashmir issue with the US President, to which Trump in a fallacious claim stated that he was already asked by PM Modi to do the same, further expressing his willingness to be a mediator between the two countries.
However, despite Trump's declaration, the Indian government has never requested a third party interference in the Kashmir dispute, furthermore, has assertively told Pakistan that 'terror and talks cannot go hand in hand.'
Meanwhile, an official statement by the Ministry of External Affairs put an end to the controversy. However, in the official press release of the White House condensing the contents of the meet between the heads of US and Pakistan, there has been no mention of India or Kashmir whatsoever.
