Spoke to my two good friends, Prime Minister Modi of India, and Prime Minister Khan of Pakistan, regarding Trade, Strategic Partnerships and, most importantly, for India and Pakistan to work towards reducing tensions in Kashmir. A tough situation, but good conversations!

PM Khan explained Pakistan’s stance on Kashmir to Trump, the country’s foreign minister said, days after New Delhi revoked the autonomous status of the disputed Himalayan territory. “The prime minister held a telephonic conversation with the US president,” Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said while addressing a press conference Monday night. “He explained in detail Pakistan’s stance with regard to Kashmir.”
