Washington:  A senior Obama administration official will visit India and China next week to "consult" on climate change ahead of the crucial UN climate talks in Paris later this year, the White House has said.

"Senior Advisor to the President, Brian Deese, will visit New Delhi on September 7 and Beijing on September 9 and 10.

"He will meet with senior officials in both countries, including Foreign Secretary Subrahmanyam Jaishankar in India and Executive Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli in China, to consult on key international climate change issues," a White House statement said.

"In both countries, he will underscore the United States' commitment to strong domestic action on climate change and the value of strong bilateral partnerships to help secure an ambitious outcome at the Paris climate conference," it said.

The much-anticipated November 30-December 11 Paris conference is tasked with sealing the long-sought universal climate deal meant to slow the march of dangerous global warming by slashing climate-altering greenhouse gas emissions from mankind's unbridled burning of fossil fuels.
