No change in policy on visa to Narendra Modi: US

New Delhi: The European Union and the United Kingdom may have had a rethink on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, but the USA is certainly not warming up to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader.

Speaking to CNN-IBN, US Assistant Secretary of State Robert Blake has said that there is no change in the American policy as far as granting visa t to the Gujarat Chief Minister is concerned.

"There is no question of changing or revising or softening. We may revise (the decision of visa to Modi) depending on Indian justice system completing cases against him only," said the US Assistant Secretary of State.

Blake further told CNN-IBN that anyone could apply for a visa to the US, but the decision to grant it would depend on many factors. According to the US Assistant Secretary of State, a judicial exoneration would be one factor in reconsidering US policy on visa to the BJP leader.
