Washington, Dec 16
US President Barack Obama called up Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday to thank him for his positive role and leadership in the successful outcome of the UN climate change conference in Paris.
“In a telephonic call to the Prime Minister today, he (Obama) said India played a critical role in making Climate Change Paris Summit an historic success,” the Indian Prime Minister’s Office said in a Twitter message.
Modi also shared with President Obama the concerns of the Indian IT industry and professionals on the proposed legislation in the US Congress relating to H1B and L1 visas, it said.
Earlier last week too, Obama had called Modi and many other world leaders in a bid to clinch the climate deal.
