Addressing the COP 21 conference here, Modi also hoped that the developed countries will fulfill their commitments in a transparent manner.

"The principles of equity and common but differentiated responsibilities must remain the bedrock of our collective enterprise," Modi said, adding that there should be aggressive mitigative action by developed countries by 2020.

Modi also underlined the need for a national will and genuine global partnership while taking steps to hammer out a climate change deal.

Noting that conventional energy was still needed, he said it should be made clean and an end to its use should not be imposed.
