Shinde's comment came after Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Sunday said US intervention would resolve the Kashmir issue.

"Kashmir is a bilateral issue, a third country can not interfere in it," Shinde said on Monday.

"This has been our stand since the time of Jawaharlal Nehru," he said.

Sharif is on a three-day official visit to Washington where he will meet US President Barack Obama.
