Batting for the global trade body, Prabhu said all countries will face problems if there is no WTO. 
 
He said the government was merely trying to mitigate the adversities of exporters, which did not tantamount to subsidising of exports from India. 
 
It is a misconception that we subsidise our exports. We are fully WTO compliant and not at all violating those, Prabhu said at an event here.
