Defence Minister Rajnath Singh today said there is no question of third party mediation on Kashmir issue as it is against the Shimla agreement.
Giving a statement in the Lok Sabha during Zero Hour, Rajnath Singh said External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has already clarified in the House that the Kashmir issue did not figure during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meet with US President Donald Trump in Osaka last month.
He said during the meeting of both the leaders, External Affairs Minister Dr S. Jaishankar was also present. Defence Minister added, whenever there will be talks with Pakistan, not only Kashmir but Pakistan occupied Kashmir will also figure. He said accepting third party mediation on Kashmir issue is against national pride.
