New Delhi: Ahead of a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday, United States President Donald Trump once again offered to mediate between India and Pakistan to resolve the longstanding issue of Jammu and Kashmir.

"I think as far as Pakistan is concerned, India, their talking, I'm certainly willing to help. I think they would in a certain way like my help. But they have to both want it. They have very different views and I'm concerned about it," news agency ANI quoted Trump as saying.

The tensions between India and Pakistan have escalated after the Centre revoked J&K's special status, accorded to it by Article 370, on August 5. While India has maintained that Kashmir is an internal issue, Pakistan has been approaching various world bodies and other countries over it. After the abrogation of Article 370, Pakistan also closed its airspace for India.

Trump on Monday Trump made a similar statement on the tensions between the two saying there is always a solution.

"I am a good mediator. I will mediate if there is assent from other side," Trump said on Monday after meeting Pakistan PM Imran Khan on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session in New York.

Trump further said he shares a good relationship with both Khan and Modi. "I can be a very good arbitrator," the US president said.

Earlier in July, after a meeting with Imran Khan at the White House, Trump had again expressed his willingness to mediate between the two countries.
