What Rajnath Singh said on Trump's Kashmir mediation claim

Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh once again rebutted US President Donald Trump's Kashmir mediation claim. While he did admit that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Trump spoke in June, he, however, categorically stated that it had nothing to do Kashmir. “As S Jaishankar ji said Kashmir issue was not discussed in President Trump and PM Modi meeting. There is no question of mediation in Kashmir issue as it will be against the Shimla agreement,” Singh said in the Lok Sabha. The Congress-led by Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury staged a walkout as the Opposition insisted on PM Modi’s statement in the House.
