Earlier on 27 May, President trump also shown his interest to act like meditator in between India and China over border issue. He said in a tweet, “We have informed both India and China that the United States is ready, willing and able to mediate or arbitrate their now raging border dispute. Thank you!”
Interacting with journalists in the White House on Thursday, Trump said a “big conflict” was going on between India and China.
“They like me in India. I think they like me in India more than the media likes me in this country. And, I like Modi. I like your prime minister a lot. He is a great gentleman,” he said.
“They have a big conflict …India and China. Two countries with 1.4 billion people (each). Two countries with very powerful militaries. India is not happy and probably China is not happy,” the president said when asked if he was worried about the border situation between India and China.
“I can tell you; I did speak to Prime Minister Modi. He is not in a good mood about what is going on with China,” Trump said.
This is not the first time when President Trump offered mediate in bilateral issues of India, when tension escalates in between India and Pakistan, that time also President Trump offered mediation.
