Trump backtracks on offer to mediate Kashmir dispute

Diplomatic win for Modi as president says India and Pakistan can find a solution

NEW DELHI -- U.S. President Donald Trump appeared to backtrack on his offer to mediate between India and Pakistan over Kashmir, telling reporters Monday ahead of a meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi that the two South Asian neighbors can handle the dispute themselves.

"We spoke last night about Kashmir," Trump said at a joint media appearance with Modi before their talks on the sidelines of the Group of Seven summit in Biarritz, France.
