Trump on India Pakistan

Washington: US president Donald Trump Saturday said that the situation between India and Pakistan is "extremely dangerous" after the terror attack in Pulwama district of Kashmir in which over 45 CRPF soldiers were killed on February 14.

"Right now between Pakistan and India, there is a very, very bad situation. A very dangerous situation. We would like to see it (hostilities) stop. A lot of people were just killed. We want to see it just stop. We are very much involved in that (process)," Donald Trump told reporters in the Oval Office, according to news agency PTI.

“India is looking at something very strong. India just lost almost 50 people in the attack. I can understand that too,” Trump said while replying to a question on the Pulwama attack - worst in decades.

Trump's statement came a week after Prime Minister Modi said that the Indian military has been given "full authority to respond to the Pulwama terror attack".

Pakistan responded by saying that it will retaliate any aggression by India on its soil. "We have nothing to do with the Pulwama attack. We condemn it. But, if there is any aggression on its soil, we will not think of retaliating, we will indeed retaliate", Pakistan Prime Minsiter Imran Khan said.

United President Trump also said that his administration was talking to authorities in both countries.

“We’re talking. A lot of people are. It’s going to be a very, very delicate balance. There is a lot of problems between India and Pakistan because of what just happened,” he said.

The president said the US has improved ties with Pakistan and works are on for meetings with Pakistan leaders and officials.

“I stopped paying Pakistan the USD 1.3-billion that we used to pay them. In the meantime, we may set up some meetings with Pakistan. Pakistan was taking very strong advantage of the United States under other presidents. We were paying Pakistan USD 1.3 billion a year. I ended that payment, because they were not helping us in the way they should have,” Trump said.
