New Delhi: The tensions have heightened between India and neighbouring Pakistan after the deadly Pulwama attack, which claimed the lives of 40 Indian soldiers, followed by Pakistan aircraft’s attempt to violate Indian airspace on Wednesday morning and taking Indian Air Force soldier in their custody.

In a revenge to Pakistan's coward act of attacking CRPF convoy in Pulwama, India conducted air strikes in Pakistan on Tuesday, destroying several terror camps and killing around 300 terrorists.


As India has been demanding from Pakistan to return its IAF soldier safely, United States President Donald Trump on Wednesday commented on the prevailing tensions between the two countries and said, “Both India and Pakistan are trying and we are also a part of it”.

He further said that attractive news on the same can be expected soon. “Expect reasonably attractive news” Trump asserted.

Trump had earlier extended support to India by backing its demand of listing Pakistan based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad as “Global terrorist” and putting a ban on him.

US National Security Adviser John Bolton has talked to his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval for a second time amidst tense ties between India and Pakistan in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack and New Delhi's air strike against JeM terror training camp in Balaklot.

Doval and Bolton are understood to have discussed the current situation in the region during the telephonic conversation on Wednesday, official sources here said.

The two national security advisers previously talked on February 15 during which they resolved to hold Pakistan to account for its obligations under the UN resolutions and remove all obstacles to designate Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) leader Masood Azhar as a global terrorist.

Bolton supported India's right to self-defence against cross-border terrorism and offered all assistance to India to bring the perpetrators and backers of the attack promptly to justice.
