India should be roped in by US if Pakistan becomes "unstable": Donald Trump

WASHINGTON: US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has said India would have to be engaged with the United States to deal with the fallout of Pakistan becoming “unstable” in the future.

He made these remarks during a radio talk show hosted by Hugh Hewitt. The host had put up a question and sought Trump’s take if “Pakistan the most dangerous country in the world other than Iran, became unstable”.

Asked by Hewitt if he would send US troops to neutralise Pakistan’s nuclear capability should the country go rogue, Trump said he wouldn’t reveal his military plans to a potential rival.

“People can’t know exactly what your intentions are,” Trump said. “You want to have…a little bit of guess work for the enemy.

“This has nothing to do with lack of knowledge, because I think I know as much about Pakistan as most other people…But I will tell you, I don’t want to broadcast my intentions.

“I want to be unpredictable with this,” Trump said. “I don’t want to be like (President Barack) Obama, where he’s always saying you know, we’re going to do this in two weeks and then we’re going to do that.”
