The White House on Friday reprimanded Pakistan to crack down on extremists and terrorists on its territory to have a successful dialogue with India. U.S President Donald Trump encourages the relations and wants to cool down the tensions between the two countries, said the White House.
When questioned about whether Trump would mediate the Kashmir issue during his upcoming Indian visit, a senior administrator said that the words from the President would be encouraging to reduce tensions between India and Pakistan and would motivate the countries to engage in bilateral trade with each other.
The President and the First Lady of U.S would visit Ahmedabad, Agra and New Delhi on February 24 and 25 leading a 12- member American delegation. The official who spoke to a famous news agency on condition of anonymity said, the core foundation to any successful dialogue between the two counties is based on Pakistan’s efforts to punish and crackdown terrorists and extremists who are on its territory, we look forward to that.
The official added that the president would wish both countries to seek to maintain peace and stability along the Line of Control (LoC) and abstain from actions or statements that could escalate tensions in the region.
The U.S would encourage India and do whatever it can do to help this peace process so the results are successful and can potentially put a full stop to the 19 years of diplomatic, economic and military rule, said the official when asked about Afghanistan peace process.
