news5s566fISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AFP) — Pakistan on Thursday welcomed an offer by US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to ease tensions with nuclear-armed rival India over ongoing unrest in Kashmir, which both claim as their own.
In an interview with Indian newspaper Hindustan Times last week, Trump said he would be pleased to be a mediator between Pakistan and India.
“Well, I would love to see Pakistan and India get along, because that’s a very, very hot tinderbox…. That would be a very great thing. I hope they can do it,” Trump said.
Islamabad said it did not comment on media reports usually but in this case it welcomed the mediation offer.
