NEW DELHI, February 6. /TASS/. Russia expects that the parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change at the conference in Paris will sign a new comprehensive agreement on the fight against global warming, which will be acceptable to all, Russian Natural Resources Minister Sergey Donskoy said on Friday.
"We are devising our stance for Paris," said Donskoy, who attended the 15th international Sustainable Development Summit held in New Delhi, India, on February 5-7.
Moscow insists on the need to "conclude a comprehensive agreement stating in a mandatory manner the differentiated responsibilities of the countries that will sign it," the minister said.
Russia believes that the conference should focus on funding measures on environment protection and ensuring access for all the sides to the so-called "green" technologies.
The 20th conference of the parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Lima, Peru, approved an agreement, which is set to become a basis for devising a new document.
Under the signed agreement, the countries are to present their national plans by March 31 on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Paris is due to host the 21th conference this autumn.
