US visa policy that supports Indian talent is 'win-win' for both: Jaishankar
On Monday, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said that a United States visa policy that supports Indian talent is mutually beneficial & a "win-win" for both the countries.
Speaking at the US-India Strategic Partnership Forum's annual leadership summit, Jaishankar said, "India offers trusted talent to the world & immigration is a win-win for both the countries. People recognize the role Indian talent has played in US, global and Indian economy. This is an area where the US should recognise what is in American interest & that will be in the interest of India also."
While interacting with Timothy Roemer, Ex-US envoy to India, he added that people recognize the role Indian talent has played in the US, global and Indian economy.
Jaishankar's remark comes in the backdrop US President Donald Trump's decision to restrict several categories of work visas, blocking the flow of skilled Indian workers into the United States.
The Govt of the US in June had suspended the entry of several non-immigrant visa categories till Dec due to Coronavirus pandemic. However, this decision was soon rescinded in the month of Aug.
