World leaders laud Paris deal, Modi says 'victory of climate justice'

PARIS/NEW DELHI: World leaders on Sunday welcomed the climate deal to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius with Prime Minister Narendra Modi describing it as a victory of "climate justice" while the pact evoked mixed reactions from environmentalists.

"This agreement represents the best chance we've had to save the one planet we've got. I believe this moment can be a turning point for the world," US President Barack Obama said in an address to the nation from the White House.

"As a result of the climate agreement we can be more confident the Earth will be in better shape," he said.

In Delhi, Modi tweeted, "Outcome of #ParisAgreement has no winners or losers. Climate justice has won & we are all working towards a greener future."
