Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt met his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh in New Delhi Friday. Reinfeldt is representing the European Union as Sweden currently holds the EU’s rotating presidency.

However Reinfeldt’s call for India to do more to fight climate change appears to have fallen on deaf ears. The Swedish prime minister told a press conference that action is especially needed by countries with major releases of greenhouse gases. But India has refused to accept concrete emissions goals at the upcoming Copenhagen conference.

Swedish Trade Minister Ewa Björling accompanied Reinfeldt and met her Indian counterpart Thursday. She says India and the EU need to show more flexibility to reach a free trade agreement.
