Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday participated in a Build Back Better for the World (B3W) roundtable event initiated by US President Joe Biden on the sidelines of the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow.

The roundtable also included British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.

PM Modi underlined the need to ensure transparent climate finance as part of important aspects in infrastructure creation during the roundtable

"It was a productive Build Back Better for the World (B3W) session hosted by @POTUS @JoeBiden and @vonderleyen," Modi tweeted.

The Ministry of External Affairs said that the Prime Minister underlined the need to ensure four aspects in infrastructure creation: Climate resilience, incorporating traditional knowledge; prioritising poor and vulnerable; and sustainable and transparent finance that respects the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries.

"Prime Minister Modi spoke about climate change, incorporating traditional knowledge, prioritising the poor and the vulnerable and sustainable and transparent finance that respects the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all states," Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla told reporters at a briefing here.

India has been objecting to Chinese infrastructure building in its neighbourhood under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). Under the BRI, China and Pakistan are building many infrastructure projects, including in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

Biden opened the roundtable with a message that the Glasgow summit should be a decade of ambition and innovation.

"My Build Back Better framework will make historic investments in clean energy, the most significant investment to deal with the climate crisis that any advanced nation has made ever,” Biden said.

"It will incentivise clean energy manufacturing, building the solar panels and wind turbines that are growing energy markets of the future, which will create good-paying union jobs for American workers – and something that none of us should lose sight of,” he said.
