New Delhi: There is no role for any third party in the Kashmir issue, which has to be resolved bilaterally with Pakistan, and the onus is on Islamabad to create an environment for engagement, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said on Thursday.

The assertion came in response to US President Donald Trump's fresh offer to "help" in resolving the issue.

"There is no role for any third party in the Kashmir issue," MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said at the ministry's weekly briefing when asked about Trump's offer.

"Our position has been clear and consistent on Kashmir... It is a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan," he added.

Pakistan's attempt to create an alarmist situation in Kashmir failed and the global community understands its double standards, Kumar said in response to another question.

Addressing the media with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in Davos on Tuesday, Trump said the US was watching the developments related to Kashmir "very closely" and repeated his offer to "help" resolve the matter.

Kumar said issues have to be resolved bilaterally and the onus was on Pakistan to create an environment for engagement.
