US President Donald Trump will be meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistan PM Imran Khan within a span of a few days as he maintains that tensions between India and Pakistan has reduced to some extent. This comes after he recently again offered to “help” India and Pakistan resolve the Kashmir dispute.
“I’ll see Prime Minister Modi and I will — we’ll — be meeting with (prime ministers of) India and Pakistan and I think a lot of progress has been made there…lot of progress,” President Trump told reporters in response to a question at the White House, without mentioning Kashmir, reports the international media.
Trump’s schedule suggests that his meeting with Imran Khan may take place on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session in New York later this month. After addressing Indian-Americans at the “Howdy Modi!” event, Trump will travel to Ohio and then is expected to fly to New York to attend the annual UN General Assembly session.
Tension between India and Pakistan are running high since August 5, when Narendra Modi led BJP government revoked Article 370 of Indian constitution, which granted the special status to Kashmir.
