Washington—US President-elect Donald Trump might serve the role of a mediator in the Kashmir issue by bringing his extraordinary deal-making skills to sort the crisis, Vice President-elect Mike Pence has said.
Pence, who appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” said, “I think you’re also going to see an energetic leadership in the world, prepared to engaged and to look for ways that he can bring those extraordinary deal-making skills to bear on lessening tensions and solving problems in the world.” He was responding to a question ‘if Trump would be a mediator over the Kashmir issue’.
“Well, clearly there’s been great tension between India and Pakistan in recent days, which resulted in violence along the Kashmir region.
