Washington, September 17

US President Donald Trump said he would be meeting the prime ministers of India and Pakistan soon, even as he maintained that tension between the two Asian countries had reduced.

While Trump will address Indian-Americans, along with Modi, at the ‘Howdy Modi!’ event in Houston on September 22, the American President did not say when or where he will be meeting Khan.

“I’ll see Prime Minister 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.

According to Trump’s schedule, he could meet the Pakistani Prime Minister on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly Session in New York later this month.

After addressing a record crowd of more than 50,000 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 General Assembly Sessions of the United Nations.

Without mentioning Kashmir, Trump said a “lot of progress has been made in reducing tension” between India and Pakistan. PTI
