Trump, Modi Discuss Afghanistan over Phone Call

(Last Updated On: February 9, 2018)

U.S. President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke by phone, discussing several regional topics, including Afghanistan.

The two leaders reiterated their commitment to Afghanistan’s security, a White House statement said.

“Both the leaders expressed concern about the political crisis in the Maldives and the importance of respect for democratic institutions and the rule of law,” the White House said in a statement.

“Affirming President Trump’s South Asia strategy, they reiterated their commitment to supporting Afghanistan’s security and stability,” the statement added.

India has increased aid to Afghanistan in recent years and promised in 2016 to ship more arms, aggravating fears in Pakistan it will become wedged between two hostile nations.
