India and the United States are set to meet on Saturday to discuss a number of issues including a ceasefire in the Himalayan region of Kashmir.
The two countries are locked in a standoff over a disputed border that has seen Indian forces shoot dead hundreds of Pakistani civilians in Kashmir.
Trump has said he wants peace but has also warned India against using force to end the crisis.
Here are some of the key moments in the standoff: Trump meets Indian PM Narendra Modi on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, June 29, 2020.
India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi greets US President-elect Donald Trump at the White House on Dec. 9, 2020, in Washington.
Trump won the November election in part on a promise to end Indian rule in Kashmir, a disputed territory where militants have waged a campaign of violence since 2001.
The two leaders will meet on the third anniversary of their historic summit in India’s capital, Delhi.
The meeting comes as Trump is expected to seek India’s help in easing economic sanctions that have put a damper on bilateral trade.
The US Congress passed a law this week imposing sanctions on the Pakistani financial institutions and Indian banks, which have been accused of providing money to militants in Kashmir and other parts of the Indian subcontinent.
