KIRUNA, Sweden, May 15 (Itar-Tass) - The Arctic Council will work on problems of carbon black and methane in the Arctic, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

Speaking at the ministerial meeting on Wednesday, Lavrov said, “We don’t sidetrack the problems of carbon black and methane in the Arctic. A final declaration due to be adopted will record the intention to create a target group in order to prepare corresponding agreements.”

In May 2012 Russia joined the G-8 Global Initiative to reduce methane and carbon black emissions. The United States, Canada, Sweden, Ghana, Mexico and Bangladesh put forth such proposal in line with the U.N. Environment Protection Programme (UNEP).
