New York: India today conveyed its concerns to the US on issues like H1B visa fee hike, export control restrictions and outsourcing ban during a meeting between External Affairs Minister S M Krishna and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton here.

"Our concerns have been raised and we have spoken our views about the risks inherent in protectionist trends that often detract from the positive impulses of cooperation in trade and economic interaction between the two countries," Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao, who was also present during the 30-minute Krishna-Clinton meeting, told reporters here.

"I think that was also understood by the US administration in our discussions and they were agreeable to the fact that we need to discuss these issues and try to resolve them," she said
