Pakistanis worry President Donald Trump may favour rival India

11-Nov-2016 :

Islamabad: Donald Trump’s surprise election as US president has Pakistanis wary that he may accelerate what they see as a shift in American policy to favour arch-foe India in the long rivalry between nuclear-armed neighbours, analysts said on Wednesday.


Pakistan on Thursday said it has welcomed an earlier offer of mediation by US president-elect Donald Trump to reduce Indo-Pak tensions as it expressed the desire to work closely with the new Trump administration.


Foreign Office (FO) spokesman Nafees Zakaria said this while responding to questions about Trump’s victory in the general elections on Wednesday.


“The US president-elect had offered mediation between Pakistan and India on Kashmir dispute during his campaign and we had welcomed that offer,” he said.
