New Delhi: United States President Donald Trump has said the relationship between India and Pakistan is "less heated" now than what was two weeks ago. Trump repeated his offer to help the two South-Asian neighbours only if both of them want.

The comments by Donald Trump were his first and comes two weeks since his meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the sidelines of the G7 summit in France on August 26.

"India and Pakistan are having a conflict over Kashmir, as you know. I think (it) is a little bit less heated right now than (what) was two weeks ago," President Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday.

Tensions between two nuclear power nations hiked after New Delhi revoked Jammu and Kashmir's special status by scrapping provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution.

"I get along with both countries very well," President Trump said while responding to a question on his assessment of the situation between India and Pakistan. "I am willing to help them if they want. They know that. That (offer) is out there."

Donald Trump, during a meeting with visiting Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan in July, had offered to mediate between the two countries on the issue of Kashmir.

India said the Kashmir issue was bilateral and rejected the offer. It has also dismissed President Trump's astonishing claim that PM Modi had asked him to mediate.

President Trump, during his meeting with PM Modi in France last month, said Kashmir is an issue that needs to be resolved between India and Pakistan.
