"Tough situation, but good conversations", says Donald Trump after phone calls with PM Narendra Modi and Imran Khan

United States President Donald Trump has urged Prime Minister of Indian Narendra Modi and Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan to work in an order to reduce the ongoing tensions over Kashmir, following the abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir. Likewise, Donald Trump mentioned this situation as a “tough situation”.

Donald Trump said, “Spoke to my two good friends, Prime Minister Modi of India, and Prime Minister Khan of Pakistan, regarding Trade, Strategic Partnerships and, most importantly, for India and Pakistan to work towards reducing tensions in Kashmir. A tough situation, but good conversations!”.

Earlier, this month the Indian Government has revoked the provisions of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution which led to the withdrawal of special status from Jammu and Kashmir and declares Jammu and Kashmir as the Union Territory with Legislative Assembly and Ladakh as the Union Territory without Legislative Assembly.
