WASHINGTON: US President Barack Obama on Tuesday telephoned Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss the progress made in climate change negotiations currently underway in Paris, the White House said.
Early this morning, the President spoke with Prime Minister Modi, White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters at his daily news conference.
It is likely that Obama would also be talking over phone with his Chinese counterpart too, he said.
A day earlier, Obama had spoken with his Brazilian counterpart.
Earnest said the US President is closely following the developments in Paris where more than 180 countries are trying to hammer out a deal on climate change.
I am happy to note that MODI is gaining international recognition thuogh inside India people work against him as "PATRAIOTC POLITICIANS". I am sure they do not simply recognize as they will have their intelligence report of what is happening in India
good to see India becoming an important player in world affairs.
THIS IS GIVING SLEEPLESS NIGHTS TO CONGRESS

India has never seen International recognition for an India PM as being done for PM Modi. A true patriot, Determined and a sincere PM. Crowd puller, Policy Maker, Visionary which is making Congress Nervous, hence the Anti-National party is playing dirty tricks. People of this country are watching and Congress will not get even a single vote to step into the Parliament.

And we all are filled up with sense of pride
I know PM Modi will do the right thing for India. When all the developed countries and China caused a lot of these pollution, the burden should not be put on India now when it is starting to jump start and build the economy fast! We need jobs for poor farmers so that there are no more suicides. Need jobs for the youth. Either the developed countries should pay for the new technology or give India exception until it's economy is on par with China! Scamgress was sleeping for the past 60 years when China was growing!

May be Modi should also start calling the other world leaders... Never know that he might already be doing it...
The outcomes of the climate summit are very critical for the survival of the humanity.
