WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump offered Tuesday to mediate the “explosive” situation in Indian occupied Kashmir, long a flashpoint between nuclear armed India and Pakistan.

Trump said he would raise the matter over the weekend with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who the US has urged to act to ease tensions in Indian occupied Kashmir.

“Kashmir is a very complicated place. You have Hindus and you have the Muslims and I wouldn’t say they get along so great,” Trump told reporters.

“I will do the best I can to mediate,” he said.
