The connection between India and Pakistan is”less heated” today than that which was just two weeks past, United States President Donald Trump said, reiterating his deal to assist both South-Asian neighbours only when the two of them desire.
“India and Pakistan are with a battle over Kashmir as you understand. I believe (it) is a bit less heated now than (what) had been just two weeks past,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday.
Tensions between the two neighbours escalated following New Delhi revoked Jammu and Kashmir’s unique status by scrapping terms of Article 370 of the Constitution.
“I get together with both states well,” Trump said while reacting to a query on his evaluation of the problem between India and Pakistan. “I am prepared to aid them whenever they need. They understand that. This (provide ) is out there.”
India was quick to deny the deal, stating the Kashmir problem was bilateral. Additionally, it has disregarded Trump’s astonishing claim that Modi had requested him to mediate.
During his interview with Modi in France a month, Trump had stated Kashmir is a matter that has to be resolved between India and Pakistan.
