WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump on Monday offered to mediate the decades-long Kashmir dispute between Pakistan and India, a move that would signal a shift in long-standing US policy that the issue must be solved bilaterally.

"If I can help, I would love to be a mediator," Trump said at the White House, where he was hosting Pakistan´s Prime Minister Imran Khan. "If I can do anything to help, let me know."

Trump further said that Pakistan is now helping the US advance on the Afghanistan peace process.

The Prime Minister said, “the solution to Afghanistan issue is only through dialogue.”

Earlier, the White House tweeted, “This afternoon, President @realDonaldTrump welcomes Prime Minister @ImranKhanPTI of Pakistan to the White House!”
