US ready to help resolve border dispute between India, China: Trump
The United States wants to help both India and China to resolve long-standing disputes between the two countries.
Washington: US President Donald Trump has said Saturday that the US is ready to help resolve the ongoing disputes between the two countries following the recent violent clashes between India and China.
Trump spoke to reporters before boarding a plane to address an election rally to be held in Auckland on Saturday evening, saying “the Asian neighbours are dealing with a “big problem” and the United States will try to “help them out.” He further said, “They’ve got a big problem there. They’ve come to blows, and we’ll see what happens. We’ll try and help them out.”
On Monday, 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a violent clash in the Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh. China has not released figures for its soldiers killed in the clashes.
Although 3 days ago, the White House said that there is no formal plan for mediation between China and India. Even before this, India has turned down the US offer for mediation.
