French President Emmanuel Macron, in an apparent snub to his US counterpart for his offer of mediation to resolve the Kashmir imbroglio, said that India and Pakistan should resolve it bilaterally, without any third party interference.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that Macron expressed this stance during a meeting with visiting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was in France to attend the G-7 Summit.
"Kashmir is a very complicated place. You have the Hindus and you have the Muslims, and I wouldn't say they get along so great. And that's what you have right now. We are helping the situation. There are tremendous problems between those two countries (India and Pakistan) and I will do the best I can to meditate or do something. It is a complicated situation. A lot has to do with religion. Religion is a complicated subject.”
Indian-administered Kashmir has been witnessing unrest for almost four decades, which New Delhi suspects are being fomented by Pakistan.
