Modi phones Trump over Kashmir

Modi phones Trump over Kashmir

US President Donald Trump yesterday spoke with India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging a reduction of tension between India and Pakistan over the disputed Kashmir region. "The president conveyed the importance of reducing tensions between India and Pakistan and maintaining peace in the region," White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a statement.

"The two leaders further discussed how they will continue to strengthen United States-India economic ties through increased trade, and they look forward to meeting again soon." Business Today adds: India and Pakistan have been at loggerheads after the Modi government moved to carve Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories and revoke Article 370, which granted special status to the state. In his verbal attack afterwards, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has likened the Modi government to the fascist, supremacist regime of Nazi Germany. In his conversation with Trump, PM Modi reaffirmed "India's longstanding and unwavering commitment to work for united, secure, democratic and truly independent Afghanistan," the PMO said in its statement.
