"India is not greedy" Sushma Swaraj rejects Donald Trump allegations against India


NEW DELHI – Indian government has hit back at US President Donald Trump after the US President had called India minting money out of the Paris Climate Deal.

Indian Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj on Monday dismissed the allegations of US president Donald Trump that India signed the Paris pact to get “billions and billions and billions” of dollars from developed nations.

“This is completely not true, India signed the Paris agreement not because of any pressure on out of greed. We are committed to the environment and this commitment is 5,000 years old. We worship nature. It is in Indian ethos. I clearly dismiss both accusations.”

Addressing the annual press conference of her ministry to highlight the achievements of the Modi government in last three years, Swaraj said, “80,000 people stranded abroad brought back to India in last three years.” 

She added that the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) has registered an increase of 37.5 per cent since NDA government took over three years ago, Indian Express reported.

She added that several measures and improvements have been introduced in the passport facility. Swaraj said, “CPEC is about sovereignty. Kashmir is integral part of India, no question of compromise.”
