India rejects Trump charge that it linked Paris climate accord for aid

India signed the Paris climate pact not because of pressure from any country or due to lure of money. To accuse India of signing the agreement because it was pressed by some countries or out of greed for foreign aid is completely baseless and unfortunate, Swaraj added. Her statement came even as the U.S. said that they do not need India to tell them how to protect their environment. We worship nature. It is in the Indian ethos. Swaraj said India would want supporting countries to speak to China about it. "India wants countries which back its bid for NSG membership to talk to China for Beijing's support", she said.

"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".

"What Trump said is not the reality", Swaraj said.

The working style and scope of the MEA has changed after Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power, while safety of Indians overseas has become a "priority", External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said today. Even though both leaders have spoken thrice since Trump took over, this will be their first meeting. "Whether the United States stays in the agreement or not, India will stay", she said.

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".

The EAM said that as of now, there were no plans of a meeting between Mr. Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif on the sidelines of the SCO summit scheduled in Astana for June 8 and 9.

"Pakistan can not take Kashmir issue to International Court of Justice". Calling the regulations "unattainable", she said that former US President Barack Obama did not approach the US Senate to clear the climate deal, "because he couldn't".

Denouncing impression that India got any money for signing the deal, Swaraj said India never meant to profit from the accord.

She also sent Pakistan a tough message, blaming it for creating conditions unsuitable for any gesture by the Prime Minister or initiative by the Indian government to resume the dialogue process. Sushma also asserted that there is no change in India-US relationship despite President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Deal.

"Efforts are on to make sure the Trump administration's move doesn't impact Indians", the minister said. "However, she admitted that the new H-1B visa rule is a matter of concern for India".
