Indo-Pak ten­sion de­fused to great ex­tent: Trump

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Nation -

Wash­ing­ton: US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has said that he will soon meet the prime min­is­ters of In­dia and Pak­istan, even as he in­sisted that a “lot of progress” has been made in re­duc­ing ten­sion be­tween the coun­tries.

While Trump along with PM Naren­dra Modi will ad­dress over 50,000 In­dian-Amer­i­cans at the “Howdy Modi!” mega event in Hous­ton on Septem­ber 22, the Amer­i­can pres­i­dent did not say when or where will he be meet­ing Pak­istan premier Im­ran Khan. “I’ll see PM Modi and I will — we’ll — be meet­ing with (prime min­is­ters of) In­dia and Pak­istan,” Trump told re­porters in re­sponse to a ques­tion at the White House on Mon­day.

Without men­tion­ing Kash­mir or the tensed ties be­tween the two South Asian neigh­bors after In­dia re­voked the spe­cial sta­tus of J&K, Trump said, “I think a lot of progress has been made there. Alot of progress.”
