United States President, Donald Trump in a meeting with Prime Minister Imran Khan, discuss a range of issues including Afghanistan and India. Ahead of bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the Davos economy forum in Switzerland, Trump told reporters both countries enjoy a “great relationship” and are “getting along very well.”
“We have never been closer with Pakistan the way we are right now. We are very close right now because of the relationship we have,” said Trump. Khan said many issues would be the focus of the meeting, singling out Afghanistan as a main one which he said concerned the U.S. and Pakistan. “Fortunately, we are on the same page. Both of us are interested in peace there,” said Khan.
Trump Offers Kashmir Mediation
US President during the meeting with PM Khan again offered Kashmir mediation between Pakistan and India and said that “What’s going on between Pakistan and India … if we can help, we certainly will be willing to. We have been watching it very closely and it’s an honour to be here with my friend,” he added.
“The Pakistan-India conflict is a very big issue for us in Pakistan and we expect the US to always play its part in deescalating the tensions, because no other country can,” he added.
India and Pakistan hold Kashmir in part and claim the Himalayan region in full. China also controls part of the contested region, but it is India and Pakistan that have fought two wars over the territory.
