MOSCOW (Sputnik) — India-US relations have suffered some setbacks in recent years. In 2005, US authorities denied a request for a US visa from Narendra Modi before he was elected prime minister in 2014.
The WTO said Friday that India had initiated "dispute proceedings" against the United States, claiming Washington’s steps "appear to be inconsistent with US commitments under the General Agreement on Trade in Services."
Delhi is demanding consultations with Washington on the issue, which will give them an opportunity to discuss the matter and to find a satisfactory solution without proceeding with litigation.
