Under the U.S. Trade Act, a Priority Foreign Country is the worst classification given to those that deny adequate and effective protection of IPR or fair and equitable market access to U.S. entities relying on IPR protection.

On the U.S. decision to deny Modi a visa back in 2005, Laha said: "U.S. government was dictated by political pressure. In 2005, the U.S. had George Bush-led government, while the Indian government was of the Congress-led UPA. Modi was not a strong political person at the time. But that's the past.

At the moment U.S. government cannot afford to upset Modi, they (U.S.) have to deal with Modi government with respect".

The United States had in March 2005 denied Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi a diplomatic visa and revoked his tourist/business visa.

They took the decision as per a section of the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act. The Act prohibits anybody who was 'responsible for, or directly carried out, at any time, particularly severe violations of religious freedom' from entering the U.S.
