The U.S. President Donald Trump has said India would like to see the conclusion of peace deal between the United States and Taliban.
President Trump made the remarks during a press conference with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday in New Delhi.
Responding to a question regarding India and Pakistan’s role in the region amid ongoing peace efforts, Trump said “Well, I think India would like to see it happen.”
Trump further added “I spoke with Prime Minister Modi today, and I think they would very much like to see it happen.”
“And we’re pretty close. We’ll see what’s going on. We’ve got two days now under our belt without violence or, I guess, a minimum of violence. And we’ll see what happens. But people want to see it,” Trump concluded.
This comes as the U.S. and Taliban representatives reached to an initial agreement during the final phases of the talks in Qatar earlier this month.
The two sides also agreed on a seven-day reduction in violence which will likely pave the way for the signing of the deal in coming days.
