Trump Yet Again Offers Mediate Between India And Pakistan, Calls The Situation Of Kashmir 'Explosive'

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday offered to mediate on the Kashmir issue. He calls Kashmir a 'complicated place' and its situation 'explosive'. Trump is to meet Indian PM later this weekend at G-7 summit.

Donald Trump has yet again offered to mediate the Kashmir situation. His recent statements come after he tweeted about the telephone conversations with prime ministers of both neighboring countries. He tweeted," Spoke to my two good friends, Prime Minister Modi of India, and Prime Minister Khan of Pakistan, regarding Trade, Strategic Partnerships and, most importantly, for India and Pakistan to work towards reducing tensions in Kashmir. A tough situation, but good conversations!"

"Kashmir is a very complicated place. You have the Hindus, and you have the Muslims, and I wouldn't say they get along so great. And that's what you have right now. And you have millions of people who want to be ruled by others, and maybe on both sides, and you have two countries that haven't gotten along in a long time," said the US President while addressing the reporters at White House. 

He then mentioned the telephone conversations with the premiers of both countries and also depicted a troublesome picture of Kashmir

" Kashmir is a very tough situation, and this has been going on for decades, and decades; shooting, and I don't mean shooting like shooting a rifle, but the major shooting of howitzers, of heavy arms, and this has been going on for a long, long period of time,"he continued.

"But I get along really well with both of them, as you know Prime Minister Khan was here just recently. And I'm going to meet Prime Minister Modi, I will be with PM Modi over the weekend, in France. And I think we're helping the situation, but there are tremendous problems between the two countries. And I will do the best I can to mediate or do something," he further added.

Trump is scheduled to meet Narendra Modi later this weekend in France for G-7 summit.

Donald Trump is seeking the mediator's job probably to gain an international reputation for the upcoming 2020 presidential elections or just using Pakistan to solve the Afghanistan problem.
