Trump in meeting with PM Imran says will talk to Modi on Kashmir issue

Davos (Agencies): Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday met with US President Donald Trump on in the Swiss city.


During their meeting on the sidelines of Davos 2020, PM Imran said he would talk to Trump on the situation in Afghanistan. He reiterated that Pakistan wished for peace in the region and would continue playing its role for South Asia's stability.

On the other hand, Trump told the Pakistani premier — whom he referred to as "my friend" — that he would speak to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the ongoing Kashmir issue.

"What’s going on between Pakistan and India … if we can help, we certainly will be willing to. We have been watching it very closely and it's an honour to be here with my friend," he added.

PM Imran said: "Fortunately, America and Pakistan are on the same page regarding Afghanistan. Talks are being held between their government and Taliban.

"The Pakistan-India conflict is a very big issue for us in Pakistan and we expect the US to always play its part in deescalating the tensions, because no other country can," he added.
