New York [United States], Apr.4 (ANI): United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has said that the Trump Administration will try to be part of efforts to deescalate tensions between India and Pakistan. "It's absolutely right that this administration is concerned about the relationship between India and Pakistan and very much wants to see how we deescalate any sort of conflict going forward," she told media here on Monday after the United States assumed the presidentship of the United Nations Security Council for the month of April. Ambassador Haley, who is of Indian ancestry, was asked whether Washington would make any effort to get India and Pakistan to engage in peace talks. It was the first comment by a member of the Trump Administration on escalating tensions between Islamabad and New Delhi. (ANI)
