Committed to climate change as per own requirements: India

HAMBURG: India said today that it remains committed on the issue of climate change “as per its own values and requirements”, days after the US announced its decision to pull out of the landmark Paris agreement.

External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay said that the focus of the Indian Government is on International Solar Alliance (ISA) and other methods of renewable energy.

Arvind Panagariya, sherpa for India at the G20 Summit, said at the same media briefing that India would need “more time” to process completely to clean fuel.

He said that the US position on climate change “remained different” from that of other countries as it wants inclusion of fossil fuel.

“Our stand has been very very clear that what we are committed on climate change as per our own values and more importantly in terms of our own requirements,” Baglay said when asked abut the key takeaway for India on climate change at the Summit. (AGENCIES)
