France: India key player in climate change convention

New Delhi:  French Minister of Foreign Affairs Laurent Fabius said India will play a vital role in the discussions of the upcoming session at the 21st Conference of Parties (COP-21) under United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to be commenced from November 30 to December 11 in Paris, France.

The Paris conference will officially be the 21st annual meeting of the COP since the formation of UNFCCC in 1992, and the 11th session of the Meeting of the Parties since it was instated in the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. The Kyoto Protocol earlier consented but not by the United States.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and French President François Hollande are expected to cooperatively launch the International Solar Alliance recommended by India.

Laurent Fabius, who held discussions with Modi and Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar before the essential summit, called India as a “key” actor in the climate change convention. He also added in an interview with a news agency that resolutions “cannot” be accomplished without an agreement with significant countries like India.

Noting that India will not only participate, but realistically enhance the scheme, he further asserted that he is sure that India would provide influential answers to numerous concerns during the summit apart from “steering” other nations northwards.

He significantly commented on the developing relations between both the countries, to emphasise on the collaborative steps by the nations.

“India, for many reasons is the key player and a close friend. It is important that we could understand what the approach of India is when it comes to the summit. The presidency should be impartial and help to find solutions. But the solutions cannot be found without the consensus of the country like India,” said Fabius.

Both the ministers acknowledged to work for an impartial, realistic, inclusive and aspirational treaties, established on the doctrines of Convention of equity, and Common but Differentiated Responsibilities and Respective Capabilities (CBDR&RC).
