Washington, Apr 10 (PTI) India is a crucial partner in the fight against climate change, a top American lawmaker has said applauding the just-concluded visit of Special Envoy John Kerry to New Delhi.

'I'm glad that Kerry met with Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss US-India cooperation in the efforts to meet global emissions targets,' Congressman Frank Pallone said in a tweet on Friday.

'India is a crucial partner in the fight against climate change and would be a welcomed participant in President Biden's Earth Day Summit,' he tweeted.

Senator Ed Markey also expressed similar sentiments.

'Pleased to see my friend Kerry meet with the @PMOIndia this week. As the #2 and #3 top global polluters, the US and India can and must lead the world to get to net-zero global CO2 emissions by 2050,' Markey said in another tweet. PTI LKJ KJ
