Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Joe Biden have launched the India-US Clean Energy Agenda 2030 Partnership at the Leaders Summit on Climate hosted by the US
India did not announce any changes or upgrades to commitments under the Paris Agreement but underlined that India was already doing its part and that the country’s per capita carbon emissions are 60% lower than the global average.
President Biden also announced an ambitious pledge to cut the US’s greenhouse gases in half by the year 2030 and called upon other nations to set higher climate ambitions that will create jobs at home, advance innovative technologies and help countries vulnerable to the impact of climate change.
US President Joe Biden is expected to formally recognize the massacre of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire during World War One as an act of genocide.
The move would be largely symbolic but would mean moving away from decades of carefully designed language from the White House and comes at a time when US and Turkey are indulged in conflict
Turkey accepts that many Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire were killed in clashes with Ottoman forces during World War One, but contests the figures and denies the killings were systematically orchestrated and constitute a genocide.
