Washington: In the remaining 18 months of his presidency, one of the major goals of President Barack Obama is to persuade India and China to agree to US proposals on climate change.

"The way I'm feeling right now is, I've got 18 months," he said.
Obama said he hopes to tackle climate change, fuel efficiency standards and to persuade countries like China and India to come aboard.
