Swaraj reiterated India's position that it will remain a part of the agreement with or without the US. "We have proven it", she added.
Maintaining that talks and terror can not go together, she also made it clear that no meeting has been fixed between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation meeting in Astana later this month. The dates for the visit are being worked out, sources said. "But at the same time terror and talks can not go together".
