Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Tuesday that he was surprised by India's reaction to US President Donald Trump's offer of mediation in the Kashmir issue. 

Earlier on Monday, Trump had said that he would love to act as a mediator between India and Pakistan over the Kashmir issue. The statement came when Khan met Trump at the White House for the first time on Monday.

Trump said that he is ready to help, if the two countries ask.

"If I can help, I would love to be a mediator," Trump said in his opening remarks at the Oval Office during his meeting with Khan.

Khan welcomed Trump's remarks and said if the US agrees, prayers of more than a billion people will be with him.

India, however, rebuffed Trump's offer, saying that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had never made such a request to him, and stressed that all outstanding issues with Pakistan are "discussed only bilaterally".
