Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his speech urged countries to rise above self-interest and deliver on all their climate obligations. He also said that developing countries must get appropriate access to the remaining global carbon budget.

Speaking at the high-level segment of the COP28 meeting Modi also proposed to host the 2028 climate change conference, COP33, in India.

The only world leader sitting on the dais at the opening plenary with COP28 President Sultan Al Jaber and UN Climate Change Executive Secretary Simon Steill, Modi spoke about India’s own actions on climate change. And reiterated that India was among very few large economies which were on track to fulfil their climate commitments. He said every other country must also do so.
