For the second time in two days, United States President Donald Trump mentioned the ongoing border tensions between India and China, going as far as saying that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is unhappy with the country's neighbor.
Speaking to reporters at the Oval Office on Thursday, Trump reiterated his offer for mediation.
However, sources told ANI PM Modi didn't speak to Trump recently.
While both the countries remained busy with meetings — PM Modi met NSA Ajit Doval, CDS Bipin Rawat, and three service chiefs; Chinese President Xi Jinping told his army to be "prepared" — Trump surprised by tweeting that he was willing to mediate.
"The United States is ready, willing, and able to mediate or arbitrate their now raging border dispute," he tweeted on Wednesday.
