“India’s decision to rescind Article 370 in Kashmir is an internal decision, but certainly with regional implications, President will likely want to hear from Prime Minister Modi on how he plans to reduce regional tensions and uphold respect for human rights for Kashmir, as part of India’s role as the world’s largest democracy”, the statement read.
This is probably after President Trump offered for mediation in the Kashmir issue for the second time and India again refused the offer saying that abrogation of Article 370 was solely it’s internal matter and that the nation was in no need of such mediation.
Apart from this the duo are slated to discuss the strategic partnership betwixt and that how they can cooperate more closely on issues like defence cooperation, counter terrorism and trade.
“We expect the leaders to build on very productive discussions they had in Osaka at G20 as well as phone call that they held earlier this week. They will look for solutions on trade front. US is looking to India to reduce tariffs and open its markets”, it read further.
