New Delhi, Dec 11: Union Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh on Friday, Dec 11, will leave for Copenhagen to attend the climate change talks.
On Thursday, Dec 10, the Union Cabinet had finalised the brief for India's position to be adopted on the issue at the high-level talks.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will attend the Summit on Dec 18 to push for an ambitious deal.
Ramesh is already facing the heat for his reported turnaround in India's position by seeking flexibility at the negotiations, with a section including the Opposition accusing him to be "sold out to the US."
However, Ramesh has been maintaining that there had been no change in his position on the basic issues of what developed and developing countries should do to fight climate change.
