Three years after his first visit to meet U.S. President Barack Obama, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will travel to Washington for his first meeting with the new President, Donald Trump, on June 26.

 

Given prevailing tensions, it should perhaps come as no surprise that Pakistan’s export level to Afghanistan is not looking good.

 

In less than a week from now, prime minister Narendra Modi will travel to the US capital to call on a gentleman who, defying all odds, was sworn in as its 45th President on January 20, 2017.

Afghan and Indian authorities officially inaugurated the first-ever air corridor between Kabul and New Delhi, fulfilling the dream of Afghan traders who have been long keen to get easier access to Indian markets.

 

Kabul has seen very few stable days since US and NATO forces invaded the country. However, Ashraf Ghani’s government, which does not represent popular will at all, blames Pakistan for each and every failure they face in every aspect of governance.

 

The kidnapping of two Pakistani officials working at the consulate across the border in Jalalabad comes at a time when the relationship between the two neighbours can best be described as being at its nadir.

 

To say that the United States is still getting used to Donald Trump as president, six months into his inauguration, is at the very least, an understatement.

 

As prime minster Narendra Modi prepares to meet US president Donald Trump, it is clear the upward trajectory of the relationship built assiduously over the years by the leadership of both countries and enjoying a broad consensus of their principal political parties, is entering a more turbulent phase.

 

Amidst the low expectations surrounding Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first face-to-face encounter with President Donald Trump next week in Washington, there is one likely area of convergence the two leaders could explore.
