KRASNOYARSK, February 15 (Itar-Tass) – The Kyoto Protocol should be superseded by a new global agreement on climate change, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Friday.

“I am not sure that in some 20 years we will be speaking about Siberia in the context of the Kyoto Protocol,” he said at a roundtable meeting dedicated to the development of Russia’s Siberian regions held in the framework of the Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum. “I hope the Kyoto Protocol will smoothly cease to be in force by that time. And bearing in mind that it is not very helpful already now, we are highly unlikely to need it in future.”

According to Medevedv, a global climate agreement is needed. “In order to reach it, not only Russia but European countries, and the whole number of other states should demonstrate their commitment,” Medvedev added.
