Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that he would like the Trump administration to be proactively engaged with New Delhi and Islamabad in resolving the Kashmir dispute between the two countries.  

The Pakistani PM also said that the entire world was aware of the danger that the Kashmir dispute posed to the World’s peace as well as stability in the South Asian region.

"We wish to see progress towards the resolution of the Kashmir dispute, which is the biggest hurdle in the way of peace and development in the region and the whole world, including the US, is fully aware of this reality," Sharif told Associated Press of Pakistan.

US President Donald Trump during his election campaign had expressed his desire to help address the issue of peace and security in South Asia, aspirations that were later echoed by his Vice President Mike Pence, and more recently by US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, referring to the resolutions of the UN Security Council on Kashmir, said the Security Council must ensure implementation of its resolutions as failure to do so was already raising many questions about its credibility.
