WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump once again offered to mediate between Pakistan and India on Kashmir saying that the relationship between two countries is ‘less heated’ than it was two weeks ago.
Speaking to reporters at the White House on Tuesday, Trump said, “India and Pakistan are having a conflict over Kashmir as you know. I think [it] is a little bit less heated right now than [what] it was two weeks ago.”
“I get along with both countries very well,” Trump said, adding “I am willing to help them if they want. They know that. That [offer] is out there.”
Tensions between India and Pakistan spiked after New Delhi abolished Article 370 of the constitution which granted special status to the occupied valley on August 5.
