WASHINGTON: The US has said there is no change in its visa policy with regard to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. "Our position on the visa issue hasn't changed at all," State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters at her daily news conference on Wednesday.

Nuland was responding to questions on the letter written by Congressman Joe Walsh to the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, that the US Government reverse its 2005 decision not to issue a US visa to Modi.

The letter by Walsh was written about a fortnight ago. "If we do respond, it ll be along familiar lines," Nuland said.

In a statement, the Indian American Muslim community demanded the State Department should not change its 2005 policy on Modi's visa.
