US President Donald Trump is set to meet Indian and Pakistani PM Narendra Modi and Imran Khan within a span of a few days. President Trump had earlier again offered to mediate on the Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan which New Delhi rejected.
On Monday, Donald Trump said he will be meeting the prime ministers of India and Pakistan soon, even as he maintained that tension between the two Asian countries had reduced, reported PTI.
While Trump will address Indian-Americans, along with PM Modi, at the “Howdy Modi!” event in Houston on September 22, the US president did not say when or where will he be meeting PM Khan.
“I’ll see Prime Minister Modi and I will — we’ll — be meeting with (prime ministers of) India and Pakistan,” Trump told reporters in response to a question at the White House on Monday.
Many experts believe that Trump could meet Imran Khan on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly Session in New York later this month.
The “Howdy, Modi!” event would the first time that an American president addresses thousands of Indian-Americans at one place in the US. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sought ideas from the people for his September 22 speech at Houston in the US.
“Share your ideas for my address. I would refer to some of them during my remarks,” he tweeted. Modi urged the people to express their thoughts on the special open forum on the NaMo application.
US President Donald Trump will also participate in the ‘Howdy Modi’ event. Modi has earlier asked the people for ideas for his Independence Day speech and ‘Mann Ki Baat’ monthly radio programme.
More than 50,000 Indian-Americans from across the US have registered for the September 22 “Howdy, Modi! Shared Dreams, Bright Futures” event to be held at the NRG Stadium in Houston. “Howdy”, short for ‘How do you do?’, is a friendly greeting commonly used in the southwestern United States.
