Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address world leaders on the opening day of a virtual summit hosted by US President Joe Biden on the climate crisis on Thursday, officials said.

Biden will welcome 40 leaders for a virtual Earth Day summit on Thursday and Friday, while opponents China and Russia have confirmed their participation in the two-day event, and the European Union and Britain have blocked major carbon cuts.

Officials aware of the problem have said that Biden will commit to reducing US greenhouse gas emissions by at least half by 2030.
