Our relationship with Pakistan is a very good one. Thanks to these efforts, we are beginning to see signs of massive progress with Pakistan and we are hopeful to reduce tension, greater stability in future and harmony in all of the nations of South Asia, Trump said.
Trump said India and the US are both victims of terrorism. He said both nations are firmly united in their iron-clad resolve to secure the citizens from the threat of radical Islamic terrorism. Both countries have been hurt by the pain of terrorism and the threat that terrorism brings.
Among the measures taken by the US to eradicate terrorism, Trump said the US has used the full force of its military to defeat Islamic State terrorism in Iraq and Syria. During his public address at the cricket stadium, Trump said every nation has the right to secure and control its borders. He identified terrorism as a common threat to both India and the US.
Trump said, “Both countries [India and US] are united in defending citizens from the threat of radical Islamic terrorism.” Trump went on to say that under him, the US had managed to “destroy” the Islamic State. “Under my administration, we unleashed the full power of the American military on bloodthirsty killers of ISIS. Today, ISIS territorial caliphate is 100 percent destroyed,” he declared. “Al Baghdadi is dead.”
