The Copenhagen meet on climate change made "limited progress" and no one was satisfied with the outcome, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said today.
He also observed that taking the path of low greenhouse gas emissions was the only alternative and India "must not lag behind" on this.
Inaugurating the 97th Indian Science Congress, Singh acknowledged that results of last month's climate summit, that saw sharp differences over issues of emission cuts and accountability, had left no one satisfied.
However, he said, India should aspire to be among the world leaders in climate-friendly technologies.
"We were able to make only limited progress at the Copenhagen Summit and no one was satisfied with the outcome.
