Speaking ahead of talks with Pakistan PM Imran Khan on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum, Trump said trade and borders were both important points for discussion, while Khan said that for him Afghanistan was the top priority.

This is the third meeting between Trump and Khan in less than a year amid reports that the US and Afghan Taliban could sign the much anticipated Afgan Peace Deal.

“Trade is going to be of very, very paramount importance … and we’re working together on some borders, and we’re talking about Kashmir in relation to what is going on with Pakistan and India. And if we can help we certainly will be helping,” said the US president.

“We’ve been watching that and following it very, very closely,” he added.

PM Khan is one of at least three leaders Trump is scheduled to meet at Davos. The others include European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and Iraqi President Barham Salih.
