US Special Presidential Envoy on Climate John Kerry met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday and noted that the United States would support India's climate plans by facilitating affordable access to green technologies and requisite finance.

PM Modi said that India is committed to meeting its nationally determined contributions under the Paris Agreement and that it was among the few countries on track to meet these commitments.

A PMO release said that Kerry briefed the Prime Minister on his "fruitful and productive discussions" over the last two days in India.

He positively noted India's climate actions including its ambitious renewable energy plans.

He briefed the Prime Minister about the upcoming Leaders' Summit on Climate scheduled for April 22 and 23.

"Prime Minister noted that India is committed to meeting its nationally determined contributions under the Paris Agreement and that it was among the few countries on track to meet these commitments. Mr Kerry noted that the United States would support India's climate plans by facilitating affordable access to green technologies and requisite finance," the release said.

It said the Prime Minister agreed that cooperation between India and the United States, particularly on financing innovation and faster deployment of green technologies, would have a positive demonstration effect on other countries.

The US Special Envoy conveyed greetings of President Biden to the Prime Minister.

PM Modi fondly recalled his recent interactions with President Biden including during the Quad Leaders' Summit and requested the US Special Envoy to convey his best wishes to President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. (ANI)
