PM Modi features in a selfie taken by his Italian counterpart Giorgia Meloni, calls it Melodi
"Good friends at COP28. #Melodi," Meloni, who came to Delhi in September to attend the G20 summit, wrote in the post.
PM Modi also met Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, British Foreign Secretary David Cameron, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Turkey President RT Erdogan, Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson and Maldives President Mohamed Muizzu, among other leaders.
PM Modi had a packed day-long schedule as he addressed the four sessions at the UN climate change conference.
The Prime Minister discussed ways to promote clean and green growth; issues of bilateral and regional interests in his meeting with many leaders on the sidelines of the summit.
Global climate negotiations largely avoided mentioning fossil fuels for decades, until Glasgow's COP26 agreed to "phasedown" unfiltered coal power and the "phase-out of inefficient fossil fuel subsidies".
