US President Donald Trump has termed the situation between Pakistan and India as the “very bad, and dangerous “, adding that his administration was in contact with the neighbouring countries and hoped that the hostilities would soon end in the occupied Kashmir.
While talking to reporters at the Oval Office, US President Trump said that “Right now there is a lot of problems between India and Pakistan because of what happened,” adding that the US would like to see it stop.
“A lot of people were just killed. We want to see it just stop,” he said.
The US president added that the US may set up some meetings with Pakistan’s leadership and officials.
He said that “We are very much involved in that (process),” adding that the US was seeking talks with Pakistan.
Trump also noted that the US has developed a “much better” relationship recently with Pakistan.
He said that relations had improved over the last short period of time.
Responding to questions on the deadly attack in Pulwama district of occupied Jammu and Kashmir in which 40 Indian security personnel were killed, Trump said “India is looking at something very strong.
India just lost almost 50 people in the attack. I can understand that too.”
Relations between the two neighbouring countries have deteriorated following an attack on Indian forces in Indian-Administered Kashmir.
The Pulwama attack claimed the lives of over 40 Indian paramilitary troops.
India has claimed that Pakistan is responsible for the attack, however, Pakistan has denied this and offered its assistance to find the true culprits.
