Indo-Pak tension defused to great extent: Trump
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.”
