Washington: Observing that electoral reasons in the US and India came in the way of a deal at the Doha Round of the WTO talks, visiting Brazilian President Luiz Inacio ‘Lula’ Da Silva on Saturday said it is now difficult to conclude the pact in the midst of the global financial crisis. The remarks were made by Lula at a joint press conference along with his US counterpart Barack Obama at the White House, wherein the two leaders discussed a host of issues, more prominent of them being the current financial crisis and the G-20 summit in London.
