Modi strong leader, will take care of terror: Trump

New Delhi: In a vote of confidence in Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Modi will take care of terror.

Speaking at a press conference here on the business leg of his visit to India, President Trump praising PM Modi said terror is foremost on PM Modi’s mind and he will take care of it.

“PM Modi is a very religious and calm man. But he is actually a very tough person. I have seen him in action. And terror is foremost on his mind; he will take care of it, said Trump”.

Talking about his own track record on crushing terrorism, Trump said, “I have done more than anyone else to destroy terrorism”.

“We killed Al-Baghdadi and took 100 per cent of the Caliphate,” said US President Donald Trump. He added that Russia, Syria and Iran should also work towards tackling radical Islamic terrorism.

On the roadmap to address radical terrorism, Trump said that Russia, Iran, Iraq and Syria should also take action on it.

“We killed al-Baghdadi a few months ago. Qasem Soleimani is gone. Hamza Bin Laden (Osama’s son) is gone. Nobody has done more than what I have done. But at the same time Russia, Iran, Iraq and Syria should do it too.”

Meanwhile, Trump again offered mediation on Kashmir.

Extending his offer, Trump said, “Anything I can do to mediate or help, I would do.”

Bringing in Pakistan’s reference, he said, “They (Pakistan) are working on Kashmir. Kashmir has been a thorn in lots of people’s sides for a long time. There are two sides to every story. We discussed terrorism at length today.”

Earlier, Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla said, “Discussion was centered on positive developments in Jammu & Kashmir. Things are moving in the right direction.”
