New Delhi: India is "open" to all discussions at the ongoing climate change talks in Lima and an attitude of confidence and optimism will guide its approach, Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Friday.

"I am going to Lima with confidence, a positive mindset, and an open mind for discussing anything," he said.

The Modi government, he added, wouldn't shy away from any discussion at Lima-Conference of the Parties (Lima-COP).

About 195 countries will participate in Lima-COP to debate the next major international climate agreement that will be finalized and signed at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris next year.

The minister leaves for the Peruvian capital Saturday to participate in a high-level segment discussion at the conference.
