US President Donald Trump on Monday said a “lot of progress” has been made in India-Pakistan relationships.
and that he looked forward to convening Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistan premier Imran Khan shortly.
The American president, who has offered to negotiate India-Pakistan disputes, including Kashmir, did not develop. “So, I will see Prime Minister Modi,” Trump told journalists and added, “I will be meeting both India and Pakistan”. He was possibly leading to his meetings with Prime Minister Modi — in Houston for the “Howdy, Modi!” event— and Imran Khan in New York.
“And I think a lot of development has been made there, lot of progress,” Trump added.

The White House had yesterday proved that Trump would attend PM Modi’s diaspora outreach event—“Howdy, Modi!”— In Houston on September 22. The move is needed strengthening personal equation Modi and Trump and the fillip to relations between New Delhi and Washington.
Organisers said Trump would also address the Houston even for which over 50,000 people have already registered. PM Modi thanked Trump and declared his support in “Howdy, Modi!” was “special gesture. This will be the 3rd connection between the 2 leaders this year. They first met on the margins of the G20 Summit in Japan and the G7 Summit in France.
Indian representative to the US Harsh Vardhan Shringla said Trump and Modi asking the “Howdy, Modi!” event jointly is “unprecedented and historic” and reflected the “personal chemistry and friendship” between the two leaders.
PM Modi is visiting the US from September 21-27 for events in Houston and addressing the UN General Assembly in New York.
Trump will travel to Ohio after the Houston event and then is expected to fly to New York to attend the Annual General Assembly Sessions of the United Nations. He is likely to meet Imran Khan on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly Session in New York later this month.
Tensions between India and Pakistan progressed after New Delhi revoked special status for Jammu and Kashmir on August 5. Pakistan has been trying to increase the Kashmir issue, but India has asserted that the abrogation of Article 370 was its “internal matter”.
