Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan raised the issue with US President Donald Trump in Davos. Trump also assured him that Prime Minister would talk to Narendra Modi. Pakistan looked very excited about this. Trump said that Imran is a very close friend of his and for him, he will definitely talk to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the Kashmir issue.

Reacting to this, Raveesh Kumar said, ‘Our side is clear about the third party on Kashmir issue and there is no change in it. I want to reiterate once again that the third party has no role in this matter. He said that if there is any bilateral issue between India and Pakistan then it should be between the two countries under the Simla Agreement and Lahore Declaration. But it is up to Pakistan to create the right atmosphere for dialogue. For this, he has to leave the path of terrorism and violence.
