In response to media queries regarding political clearance for Shri Arvind Kejriwal, Chief Minister of NCT of Delhi for a visit to Copenhagen, Denmark to participate at the C40 World Mayors' Summit, the Official Spokesperson said:

"A considered decision on political clearance by the Ministry of External Affairs is based on multiple inputs and takes into account the nature of the event, the level of participation by other countries, type of invitation extended, etc. In the instant case, the participation of Chief Minister of NCT of Delhi as a Speaker at a panel discussion was not commensurate with the level of participation from other countries. The Chief Minister of one of the largest and populous cities in the world, which also is the capital of India, was therefore advised not to attend the event.”
