Trump visiting Saudi Arabia to discuss extremism in Afghan, Pakistan with Muslim leaders Featured

Written by  May 18, 2017

WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump during his visit to Saudi Arabia this week, will discuss steps to continue the fight against the ISIS and extremism in Afghanistan and Pakistan as he addresses the Muslim world.

Leaders from more than 50 mostly-Muslim countries, including Afghanistan and Pakistan from India's neighbourhood, are scheduled to attend the meeting convened by Saudi Arabia over the weekend.

Trump would address the gathering on Sunday.

"He (Trump) will meet and have lunch with leaders of more than 50 Muslim countries where he will deliver an inspiring, yet direct, speech on the need to confront radical ideology," US national security advisor H R McMaster told reporters at the White House.

"The speech is intended to unite the broader Muslim world against the common enemies of all civilisation and to demonstrate America's commitment to our Muslim partners," he said while giving details of Trump's itinerary for his visit.

The discussion on extremism in Afghanistan and Pakistan would come up as part of the larger debate within the Islamic world and specifically to this part of the world, a senior Trump administration official said on the condition of anonymity on Wednesday.

"So the general problem of extremism, which is the same problem in Mosul as it is in Afghanistan and to some degree in Pakistan, that's the issue that we're trying to deal with, which is extremism. So it will be something that will be discussed," the official said.

The Trump administration is in final stage of formulating its Afghanistan-Pakistan policy which among other things would decide on the number of troops to be deployed in Afghanistan.

The final decision in this regard would be taken by the generals on the ground.

From Saudi Arabia, Trump would travel to Jerusalem, where he will meet Israeli President Rivlin and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and lay a wreath at Yad Vashem.
