Extreme rhetoric against India by some regional leaders not good for peace: PM to Trump

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday held a telephonic conversation with US President Donald Trump during which he made an indirect reference to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s extreme rhetoric against India, and said such incitement to anti-India violence was not conducive to peace.

Officials in PMO said that Modi had a 30-minute-long telephonic conversation with Trump during which they discussed bilateral and regional issues. The conversation was marked by the “warmth and cordiality” which characterises the relations between the two leaders.

In the context of the regional situation, Modi stated that extreme rhetoric and incitement to anti-India violence by certain leaders in the region was not conducive to peace, officials said. (AGENCIES)
