NEW DELHI - US President Donald Trump spoke with the leaders of India and Pakistan on Monday , discussing prospects for improved trade ties with Washington and stressing the need to reduce tensions over Kashmir between the nuclear-armed neighbours.

Relations between Islamabad and New Delhi, already hostile, have been further strained over India's decision this month to revoke the special status of its portion of the Kashmir region that both countries claim. Pakistan reacted with fury, cutting transport and trade links and expelling India's ambassador in retaliation.

US and Indian trade negotiators ended talks in July without making major progress on a range of disputes over tariffs and other protectionist measures imposed by both sides that are straining bilateral ties, officials have told Reuters. The White House said in a statement that Trump also had spoken with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan to"discuss the need to reduce tensions and moderate rhetoric" with India over the situation in Kashmir.
