On Friday US President Donald Trump talked about Pulwama attack. He said that the situation between India and Pakistan is very bad at the moment. India lost its 40 CRPF soldiers in Pulwama attack at Jammu and Kashmir.
“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.
“India is looking at something very strong. India just lost almost 50 people in the attack. I can understand that too,” Donald Trump said, adding 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.
Donald Trump also said the US has improved ties with Pakistan and works are on for meetings with Pakistan leaders and officials. “I stopped paying Pakistan the $ 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 $1.3 billion a year. I ended that payment, because they were not helping us in the way they should have,” Mr Trump said.
The United Nations Security Council too condemned “in the strongest terms the heinous and cowardly suicide bombing in Jammu and Kashmir,” and named Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed, which had claimed responsibility for the attack.
