Trump's comments to a question on the tension between India and Pakistan came a day after he made separate phone calls to Prime Minister Modi and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.

President Trump said he was happy to try and help calm the situation in Kashmir amidst fresh Indo-Pak tensions after India revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.

"I'm going to be with Prime Minister Modi. I'll be with him over the weekend in France," Trump said, referring to the G7 Summit in Biarritz, France during the weekend.

"Pakistan Prime Minister (Imran) Khan was here just recently. I get along really well with both of them," he said.
