Srinagar: Adviser to Pakistan prime minister on foreign affairs Sartaj Aziz on Tuesday said United States (US) president-elect Donald Trump would deserve Nobel prize if he intervenes and succeeds in resolving the Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan, Pakistan daily Dawn reported.
“Trump would deserve Nobel prize if he helps resolve Kashmir dispute,” he said on a lighter note while responding to a question regarding Trump’s offer to mediate between Pakistan and India, the daily reported.
Aziz indicated that Pakistan will welcome any such intervention by the US president-elect Donald Trump, the report said.
Earlier, the US president-elect had shown interest to mediate between Pakistan and India.
“Well, I would love to see Pakistan and India get along, because that’s a very, very hot tinderbox. That would be a very great thing. I hope they can do it,” Trump said in an interview.
Sartaj Aziz, while talking to media in Islamabad, also revealed that Pakistan will participate in the Heart of Asia Conference scheduled to be held in India on December 3, 2016, the report further said.
“Unlike India, that had sabotaged Saarc summit in Pakistan by pulling out, Pakistan will respond by participating in the Heart of Asia being held in Amritsar, India, on December 3,” Dawn quoted Aziz to have said.
“Despite the fact that Indian forces killed our seven soldiers along Line of Control on Monday, Pakistan will not boycott the conference,” Aziz was quoted in the report.
