Trump said that they are watching closely on the Kashmir issue and the relation that is going on with India and Pakistan if needed US can mediate the issue.

Trump, who is likely to visit India in the last week of February, regarding plans of visiting Pakistan stated that as they met now, so won't really have to visit Pakistan now. However, he wanted to say hello to both the countries at a relationship standpoint.

Reportedly, after Khan's maiden visit to Washington last year July, this was the third leadership-level interaction between both Pakistan and the US. Earlier, in September 2019 also, both the world leaders met on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

Coincidently, the meeting between Khan and Trump came amid the crisis in the Gulf region between Iran and the US, and Pakistan is putting efforts to persuade the US' support on the Kashmir issue.
