'Donald Trump's ignorant conversation with Nawaz Sharif may prove unwelcoming for India'

New Delhi: A day after Pakistan claimed that US President-elect Donald Trump hailed Pak Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif as a terrific guy, a leading American magazine has said that this ignorant conversation of his might not send a welcome message to India.

This flattering conversation of Donald Trump sends a wrong message to India and also implies that he is unaware of the prevailing issues between India and Pakistan.

The report says that "His bluster is more likely to be taken as the initial signal of his Administration?s position. When he goes on and on about how wonderful Pakistan is, and how strong is his friendship, it matters. It matters that he uses words like: very good reputation, amazing work...Fantastic country, fantastic place, fantastic people," it said.

"One of the main messages it sends, is that he shows no awareness of the issues between the United States, Pakistan, and India," it said.

The report further states that he is not aware about the realities in South Asia and this statement of his might add some bitterness to India-US relations.
