              Same how these PORKY's were claiming in their own paid media that Russia was pleased with joining hands on CPEC,--and just yesterday Russia came out strong saying no such discussion,----acceptance took place and POK media is far from reality.

                          It does not matter if US, uk, france, israel ,russia support us or not. They dont want the conflict to end. India is one of the largest arm importer. If conflict ends, these countries will lose huge revenue source. It's business.

                              America and China is competing and stan is enjoying (the spoiled child)lt;br/gt;Not of any concern for India. India knows it has to be strong and cannot trust anyone. But truth will prevail.

                                    Trump can and will pump up someone for diplomatic purposes ! Meanwhile Porkis can interpret or add anything to suit their narrative for an improved image of themselves.lt;br/gt;"Dil Key Khush Rakhney Koo Ghalib Yeh Khayal Achaa Hai" !

                                      America first ....is the policy of US.No country in the world including stan should remain under a wrong impression that they act as per personal likes or dislikes. Trump will judge where stan fits in the scheme of Things in his mind.whether there is a utility of Paskistan for US interests in the region or not?... Americans claims to be the promoter and champions of Democracy in the world...But they wheartedly support dictators if they are useful to US interests and dump democracies if are not useful to them... No permanent friends or foes.... same is applicable to india also.

                                        Corroborative evidence to support the above statement is missing. Hence nothing can be trusted at its face value.

                                            May be Trump put auto reply saying " You are great guy" and this PM doesn't know that the voice he is hearing is actually from answering machine.
