WASHINGTON - In a new development, President Trump reveals progress on tensions between Pakistan and India.
US President Donald Trump has suggested that “a lot of progress” has been made with regard to the prevailing situation between Indian and Pakistan.
The US President made the remarks while confirming that he would attend Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Howdy Modi’ event in Houston on September 22.
President Trump said, “I will see Prime Minister Modi and I will be meeting with India and Pakistan and I think a lot of progress has been made there...lot of progress.”
The latest remark by the US President assumes significance in the wake of the ongoing tensions between India and Pakistan following Modi government’s move to abrogate Article 370, which granted special status to Occupied Kashmir Jammu and Kashmir.
Just days ahead of the announcement on Jammu and Kashmir, President Trump had met Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. During a joint press meet with Khan, Trump had said that he was asked by Modi to mediate between New Delhi and Islamabad on the Kashmir issue.
