New Delhi:  External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj returned to the capital today after a three-day visit to the US during which she participated in the International Yoga Day celebrations at the United Nations.

During her visit, Swaraj met UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and discussed several regional and global issues including climate change and sustainable development.

"Back from New York after International Day of Yoga celebrations at United Nations," she tweeted.

The United Nations had last December declared June 21 as International Yoga Day.

Swaraj refused to answer any question relating to the 'Lalitgate' when reporters asked her about it on her return here.

She will leave for Nepal tomorrow on a two-day visit to participate at an international donors' meet on reconstruction of quake-hit Nepal.
