Imran Khan: Time for Trump mediation on Kashmir

Tensions between India and Pakistan over Kashmir have the potential to blow up into a regional crisis and it is the time for US President Donald Trump to mediate, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Sunday.

“President Trump offered to mediate on Kashmir. This is the time to do so as situation deteriorates there and along the LOC with new aggressive actions being taken” Indian forces, Imran said on Twitter, referring to the heavily militarised de facto border that divides the two parts of Kashmir between India and Pakistan. “This has the potential to blow up into a regional crisis,” he said.

Imran’s comments come a day after Pakistan accused India of using illegal cluster bombs, killing two civilians and wounding 11, in the disputed Kashmir region. The Indian Army termed as “lies and deceit” Pakistan’s assertion that Indian troops used cluster bombs targeting civilians along the Line of Control (LoC).
