Washington: US President Donald Trump will reportedly hold discussions on the Kashmir and the human rights issue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi when the two leaders meet at the G7 Summit in Biarritz, France at the weekend.
Sharing more information, a senior US administration official told reporters that President Trump will hold discussions with PM Modi on the ongoing tensions between India and Pakistan over Kashmir.
“President Trump will likely want to hear from Prime Minister Modi on how he plans to reduce regional tensions and uphold respect for human rights in Kashmir,” the US official said.

After a brief conversation with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday, the US President once again offered his proposal to mediate on Kashmir, despite making it clear before that the ongoing dispute in the region should be resolved bilaterally by India and Pakistan.
Ramping up rhetoric against India, Pakistan is endlessly trying to involve the international community in the wake of New Delhi’s historic decision to change the constitutional status of Jammu and Kashmir.
This move comes despite India reiterating that the matter is strictly “internal” to the country.
