US lauds India for ratifying Paris climate deal

New Delhi, Oct 3 (IANS) In joining the Paris climate agreement, India has taken a bold and decisive step in combating climate change, the US has said.

“We commend Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his leadership and thank all those who have worked on the Agreement over many years,” US Ambassador Richard Verma said in a statement on Sunday.

India’s ratification provides indispensable political momentum to securing entry into force of the Paris Agreement this year, sending an enduring and irreversible market signal that low-carbon development is 21st century development, which will yield tremendous benefits not only for producers and consumers in India, but for those around the world.

We look forward to continuing our close friendship with India and furthering our work together on climate change and clean energy, so that we may provide future generations a world to be proud of and treasure, the statement said.
