India is not exploiting Paris deal, minister rubbishes USA allegation

India is not exploiting Paris deal, minister rubbishes USA allegation”

Swaraj also rubbished US President Donald Trump's accusation that India signed the Paris climate accord for money. "That is why I am rejecting the allegations completely and that is why India will continue to remain in the Paris agreement framework, whether the US continues in it or not", she said. "We are a people who worship rivers, mountains, trees". "After the arrival of the Trump administration, India-U.S. ties have not diminished".

"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".

India wants to settle all issues with Pakistan through dialogue, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said, but also made it amply clear that talks and terror can not go together.

India's external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday said the Indian government will take on board West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee while negotiating with Bangladesh the vexed Teesta waters issue. There has been widespread protests in U.S. against President's Trump decision.

"We want to resolve all issues with Pakistan bilaterally but talks and terror can not go together", the minister said.

The press conference was organised to brief media about the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government's performance over the past three years.

Diego Costa says he won't go to China
The Gunners have now won the FA Cup three times in the last four seasons and Costa was quick to concede the better team won on the day.

Asked about remarks of a Pakistan law officer that Islamabad will take the Kashmir issue to the International Court of Justice which India approached in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case, Swaraj said: "Pakistan can not take Kashmir issue to ICJ".

She said experts had claimed that India's foreign policy towards the Gulf would suffer after Modi took charge, but West Asia is the "only region" New Delhi shares a great equation with.

The minister said there was no flip-flop on part of the government in handling Pakistan. "We have proven it", she added. Top officials of the two countries still met in the following months; but could not cap the downward spiral in relations.

She also referred to some cases pending at other courts such as Hyderabad Nizam funds case in the United Kingdom court and issues pertaining to Indus Waters Treaty before the World Bank.

"India signed the Paris agreement not because of any pressure on out of greed. However, she admitted that the new H-1B visa rule is a matter of concern for India". We want to sort out all issues with Pakistan through talks bilaterally and not through mediation of any group, country or associations.

Announcing that the U.S. will exit from the agreement, last week Donald Trump had said that India was getting "billions of dollars" for meeting its commitment under the 2015 Paris Climate Accord (PCA).
