There is no role of any third party in Kashmir matter, reiterates MEA

Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar on US President Donald Trump raising Kashmir issue again, stated that there is no role for any third party in the matter. If there is any bilateral issue between India and Pakistan, it has to be discussed by both the countries under several provisions. "Our position on the Kashmir issue and third party mediation has been very clear and consistent. Let me reiterate that there is no role for any third party in this matter. If there are any bilateral issues between India and Pakistan that needs to be discussed, it should be done between the 2 countries under provisions of Shimla Agreement and Lahore Declaration. But onus is on Pak to create such conducive conditions - free from terror, hostility and violence," said Raveesh.
