‘India, Pakistan conflict may end soon’, says Donald Trump

United States President Donald Trump on Thursday said he hoped the hostilities between India and Pakistan would end soon after the two nuclear powers clashed across the border. He further said, he has some “reasonably decent” news with the US involved in trying to help reduce tensions between the two neighbours.

Speaking at a news conference after the end of his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump said he had some “reasonably decent” news from India and Pakistan.

“We have been involved in trying to help India and Pakistan stop and we have some reasonably decent news,” Trump said.

Tensions between India and Pakistan rose following the February 14 terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district in which at least 40 CRPF soldiers were killed by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror group.
