New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj asserted on Sunday that the NDA government’s foreign policy was “very successful” with India having connected with 101 countries in the past one year.

“Government’s foreign policy based on three pillars of ‘sampark, samvad and parinam’ (contact, dialogue, and results)… In one year, we have connected with 101 countries,” Sushma Swaraj said addressing a press conference on Sunday.

She said the contacts were made either by visiting the countries, or having their leaders visit India, or dialogues on the sidelines of multilateral conferences. “Our foreign policy is very successful….”

The minister also said that there was no competition between her and Prime Minister Narendra Modi over foreign visits. “A pro-active PM is a support, not a challenge,” she said.
