US Republican Senator Lindsay Graham and Foreign Secretary Shah Mahmoud Qureshi talked about the “upgrade of the Kashmir crisis” and expressed optimism that the Trump administration will help cope with the current crisis.
“We have just discussed the growing crisis in Kashmir with the Pakistani Foreign Minister. India’s view of changing the situation should change before further crises,” a senior Senate said on Twitter late Wednesday.
“We hope that the Trump administration will provide assistance to Pakistan and India to find ways to solve the problems that have already been encountered.

Prime Minister Imran said in a message to India condemning “new hostilities” last week that Pakistan is open.
“President Trump is committed to standing in Kashmir. It is time to do so because the new violence committed by Los Angeles and Indian security forces has become worse,” the minister said. “These are likely to bring us Regional issues.”
