US President Donald Trump has said that while Pakistan is fighting terrorism ‘a little’, India is doing nothing to curb it. Speaking to the media, the US president said that other countries should also battle against extremists as the US negotiates a withdrawal from Afghanistan. He continued that at a certain point Russia, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq and Turkey are going to have to fight their battles too, local media reported.
He signaled out Pakistan and India and said that they were doing little to fight militants. “Look, India’s right there, they are not fighting it, we’re fighting it. Pakistan is next door. They’re fighting it, very little…. it’s not fair. The United States is seven thousand miles away,” Trump further said.
“At a certain point Russia, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, they are going to have to fight their battles too.” The Trump administration has reduced the US military presence in Syria and Iraq. It is currently negotiating a US withdrawal from Afghanistan with the Taliban insurgents.
