Iceland and India to cooperate?

Iceland’s President Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson said Iceland and India could cooperate on energy exploitation in his speech at an international conference about sustainable development in Delhi, India, yesterday.

Issues such as the danger of global warming and its influence on the living conditions, energy resources and the role of reusable energy are being discussed at the conference.

Harnessing geothermal energy in China, India and Africa are also on the conference agenda, as well as the fight against poverty. Fréttabladid reports.

Grímsson said in his speech that Iceland could serve as a center for discussions, research and decisions in the field of clean energy, and so influence a changed approach to energy exploitation worldwide and the danger of climate change.

A number of Indian science and research pioneers, business leaders, environmentalists and politicians are attending the conference, which began on Sunday and ends tomorrow.

Iceland’s President Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson and Finland’s President Tarja Halonen are honorary guests.
