New Delhi, May 28 (IBNS): Hinting at no change in stance towards Pakistan, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday said talks with the neighbouring country cannot take place with continued terrorism at the border, media reports said.

Swaraj made the comment while addressing the annual press conference on Narendra Modi government's fourth anniversary.

She has been quoted by NDTV, "We are ready for talks. But there's a caveat -- terror and talks cannot go together. This has always been our position."

Swaraj has hinted that there will be no softening in stand with Pakistan.

The Minister has also said India is trying to ensure that its citizens are not affected by the H1-B visa policy of the US.

Swaraj said the country is in touch with all arms of the US government over the new policies of the H1-B visa.

She has been quoted by NDTV, "Ultimately it's America's decision; they are a sovereign country but we are trying our best."

Regarding India's position on the US' new sanctions on Iran, Swaraj said: "We accept UN sanctions, not country specific ones."
