In the wake of Pulwama terror attack US President Donald Trump strongly backed India and said 'India looking at something very strong and the situation between India and Pakistan is "very dangerous" after the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama in which over 40 CRPF soldiers laid down their lives."

"Right now between Pakistan and India, there is a 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)," President Trump added.

 

President Trump in his speech also stated that "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."

Whereas, after Pulwama attack, India has launched a diplomatic offensive to isolate Pakistan in the international community for its support to terror groups and cross border terrorism.

It has also scrapped the most favoured nation status granted to Pakistan and imposed a 200 per cent customs duty on its goods.

Looking towards the bold step taken by the Indian government, President Trump concurred and said "India is looking at something very strong. India just lost almost 50 people in the attack. I can understand that too."

Trump further said, "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."

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.
