The Global Eye: Experts discuss international attention to Kashmir

Updated : August 20, 2019 11:08 PM IST

In the first highest-level interaction after India’s announcement on Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today held a telephonic conversation with US President Donald Trump and conveyed that extreme rhetoric and incitement to anti-India violence by certain leaders in the region was not conducive to peace.

Modi’s comments on extreme rhetoric by some regional leaders was an obvious reference to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who has been making provocative comments against Modi Government and Indian action in the last few days.

The 30-minute conversation between Modi and Trump covered bilateral and regional matters, and was marked by the “warmth and cordiality which characterises the relations between the two leaders”, a Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) release said.

“In the context of the regional situation, the Prime Minister stated that extreme rhetoric and incitement to anti-India violence by certain leaders in the region was not conducive to peace,” it said.
