Statement by Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, COP21 President
Paris - October 23, 2015
The negotiating session on climate change in Bonn concluded with the publication of a new longer but more balanced draft text, which puts various options on the table.
In this context, France will host from November 8 to 10 broad-based informal ministerial consultations – the Pre-COP – in order to make progress, while there is little time left. It will then be up to us to bring these negotiations to a conclusion in Paris. As COP21 president, I will listen to the concerns of all countries in a spirit of transparency and dialogue, with the firm intention of reaching the necessary ambitious agreement.
