    Commerce Minister Nirmala Sitharaman told the Lok Sabha in a written reply that during the April-September period of the current fiscal, the deficit stood at $25.22 billion.

    She also said that as India and China are both members of the World Trade Organisation, any trade restrictions imposed requires to be WTO compliant.

    No blanket ban can be imposed on China, or any other member country, under the WTO framework, she said.
