Opposition leaders said they will not accept any third-party mediation.

Opposition leaders are angrily demanding Prime Minister Narendra Modi clarify his position in Parliament about President Donald Trump mediating India's dispute with Pakistan over Kashmir.

External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar said in Parliament on Tuesday that Modi made no such request to Trump as the US president had claimed.

Opposition leaders Anand Sharma and D. Raja said India's position was that Kashmir was a bilateral matter with Pakistan and it will not accept any third-party mediation.

Trump said Modi recently asked him whether he would like to be a mediator or arbitrator on Kashmir. Trump spoke to reporters in Washington before Monday's meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.
