On the H1B visas, Swaraj said while nothing has changed so far in the U.S., there were concerns Sushma rebuts Trump on Paris agreement and New Delhi was in touch with the USA administration and lawmakers. "Our commitment to the environment is 5,000 years old".
She said that it was part of the Indian ethos to revere nature and that rivers, forests and mountains continue to be worshipped and revere in this country. "I clearly dismiss both accusations", the EAM maintained. "I want to say that we are looking at it as relationship of mutual benefit".
"I think the rest of the world would like to tell us how to manage our own environment and I think that anybody in America can tell you that we're best to decide what America should do".
"This is completely not true", Swaraj said about Trump's charges he made while announcing the United States exit from the Paris deal last week.
But Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said India was not in the Paris accord for money or because it had faced pressure from other countries.
India today said Pakistan can not take Kashmir to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and asserted that the issue must be resolved bilaterally. She made the statements while speaking to the media about key initiatives undertaken by her ministry during the three years of the Narendra Modi government, reported PTI. "The two countries are bound by these bilateral agreements".
Maintaining that talks and terror can not go together, she also made it clear that no meeting has been fixed between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation meeting in Astana later this month.
Because of the proactive efforts of the government, there has been a record FDI flow, which rose by over 37 percent, into the country, she added.
Denouncing impression that India got any money for signing the deal, Swaraj said India never meant to profit from the accord.
She, however, downplayed the chances of growing disagreement between India and the US affecting the bilateral ties after Mr. Trump became President.
She said she was monitoring the project, and taking of review every three month to report to the Prime Minister every six month.
