Indian officials criticized the United States for putting it on a watch list of nations with a mixed record of tackling human trafficking, child labor and forced marriages.

India "rejects judgmental and prescriptive approach by a foreign government," the External Affairs Ministry said in a statement.

The U.S. State Department listed 32 countries, including allies such as Mexico, India and Kuwait, and important world powers including China and Russia, as being on a "watch list" of problem nations where the record of prevention and prosecution is mixed, the AP reports.
