Pakistan’s Khan, EU representatives in Davos, meet Trump

 U.S. President Donald Trump held meetings on the sidelines of the annual World Economic Forum (WEF) summit in Davos, Switzerland on Tuesday (January 21).

Trump struck a cautiously optimistic tone on trade talks with Europe after a meeting with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. Having long accused the EU of gaining an unfair trade advantage, Trump has threatened to slap new tariffs on European cars and car parts, a vital export product, particularly for Germany, the euro zone’s biggest economy.

Trump also met with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and said the United States was watching developments between India and Pakistan over Kashmir “very closely” and that he was prepared to help if necessary. The U.S. president did not say how.

Neither von der Leyen or Khan spoke to speak to reporters after their meeting with Trump.
