India has apprised US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry, foreign ministry said.

India has apprised US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry of its wide-ranging efforts to meet the commitments under the Paris climate agreement and to reduce emissions, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said on Thursday.

On a visit to India, Kerry has called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and held separate meetings with External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar and Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on issues relating to global climate action.

At a media briefing, MEA Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said Kerry appreciated PM Modi's vision and global leadership in climate action, especially India's ambitious target of generating 450 gigawatt of renewable energy by 2030.

He said the two leaders discussed the need for supporting climate action by all countries, in line with their respective national circumstances.

Under the Paris Agreement, each country has to set its own emission-reduction targets, known as national determined contributions (NDCs).
