Washington: The American Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump has offered to play the role of a mediator or arbitrator to ease-down the current Pak-Indo tensions.

During an interview with Indian Newspaper, Trump said he'd be willing to play a mediating role in addressing the "very, very hot tinderbox" of Kashmir between India and Pakistan."If it was necessary I would do that. If we could get India and Pakistan getting along, I would be honored to do that. That would be a tremendous achievement ... I think if they wanted me to, I would love to be the mediator or arbitrator," Trump said in the interview.

Donald Trump said that if elected, the US would be "best friends" with India, a comment that could cause consternation in Pakistan.

"We're going to be best friends," Trump said of India during remarks at a Republican Hindu Coalition event. "There isn't going to be any relationship more important to us."

India has long opposed third-party mediation on Kashmir. It rejected United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's offer in late September to play a role.

Pakistan, on the other hand, has sought international help in resolving the decades-long conflict.

Recently, it accused India of what it sees as humanitarian violations in Indian-administered Kashmir.
