New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday reacted angrily to the US President Donald Trump’s remarks on Kashmir and said such statements only underscores “the biggest problem in the US system”.
“POTUS’ statement on Kashmir underscores the biggest problem in the US system today,” tweeted BJP general secretary Ram Madhav.
He further wrote, “With expert India and South Asia hands like Lisa Curtis in White House and the State Dept, if he (President Trump) makes such a statement then there is something fundamentally wrong”.
Lisa Curtis is the Deputy Assistant to President Trump and Senior Director for South and Central Asia at the American National Security Council.
The US President on Monday dropped a virtual bombshell as he said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asked him, during Osaka meet in Japan in June, to ‘mediate’ between India and Pakistan on Kashmir.
