Trump keeping 'open mind' on Paris Agreement: Report

"In all our negotiations, that we are having today or we are going to have tomorrow, the US is part of it. There has been a talk of reopening of some of the clauses of Paris agreement. "India is not in favour and that has been largely accepted. So as of now, if the US is with us, it strengthens the climate change negotiations, but I don't think we are having an adverse impact affect as far as negotiations are concerned," Mishra told reporters.

When asked whether this would have any adverse impact on India after US pulled out from agreement, Mishra told that it won't have any impact on the country.
