Terming Trump’s offer to mediate on Kashmir issue as “off the cuff” remark, he said, “There was some question whether the president has volunteered to negotiate in the Kashmir matter. It was just off the cuff remark.”

Asserting that the US administration’s position and Trump’s position has been very clear, he said, “Actually, the US administration’s position and President Trump’s position is very clear and his position has been very clear from day 1.

On being asked about the difference in trade issues between India and the US, Kumar said, “There really are not major disputes between the US and India. There are few.”
