The UN published the first informal draft of the climate deal on Thursday and it doesn't mention the phase-down of all fossil fuels. Nearly the same language was used in the Glasgow Climate deal last year. A spokesperson of the Environment Ministry said the Indian negotiators do not wish to comment "as negotiations are going on". The EU has said it will support India's proposal for an end-of-talks decision on fossil fuels if it comes on top of its own. India had proposed that the talks wrap up with a decision to "phase down" all fossil fuels and not just coal.
