US President Donald Trump today urged Muslim countries to deny sanctuary to extremists and called for international isolation of Iran, which he accused of fuelling “sectarian conflict and terror”. “From Lebanon to Iraq to Yemen, Iran funds, arms and trains terrorists, militias and other extremist groups that spread destruction and chaos across the region,” Trump said in a major speech in Saudi Arabi.

“Until the Iranian regime is willing to be a partner for peace, all nations of conscience must work together to isolate it… and pray for the day when the Iranian people have the just and righteous government they so richly deserve.”

    Defy US smartly. US of A is becoming increasingly unpredictable & can't be trusted any more... not till DT is in high office. US is sabotaging their own interests in the way & may lead us to slippery path if not checked in time. Be smart to use US for our benefits but keep our options open all the time. May be Pt. Nehru's NAM policies come handy for a change...
