Trump says Modi not in good mood about China


By Aarti Tikoo Singh

New Delhi/Washington, May 29 (IANS) US President Donald Trump has claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not pleased with the Xi Jinping regime over the ongoing border conflict while reiterating his offer of mediation between India and China.

Responding to a media query related to the border tensions between India and China, President Trump on Thursday at his Oval Office said, "They have a big conflict going with India and China. Two countries with 1.4 billion people. Two countries with very powerful militaries.

"And India is not happy, and probably China is not happy."

"But I can tell you, I did speak to Prime Minister Modi. He's not...he's not in a good mood about what's going on with China."

The President did not specify when exactly he spoke to Modi about the ongoing stand-off at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh. Official sources in New Delhi said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has had any recent contact with President Trump though.

The last conversation between the two leaders was on April 4 on the matter related to Hydroxychloroquine, sources said. The government on Thursday also announced that it was directly in touch with the Chinese through established mechanisms and diplomatic contacts to resolve the face-off on the Western front in Ladakh.

However, at the press conference, in response to another question, President Trump repeated his offer of arbitration between the two countries. "If they thought it would help if I were the mediator or the arbiter, I would do that. So we'll see."

    China has always been a number one threat to India. They are never happy with India and always have their Bossy communist culture. We dont need Trump to tell why Modi is worried.

    Not in good mood? It's because he hasn't travelled in 3-4 months, that's all. Other than that there's nothing he can do with China, he knows that very well. It's not like the other weaker neighbor whom he milks for publicity.
