UNITED NATIONS, September 23. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who took the floor at the general political discussion in the format of the 71st session of the UN General Assembly, stressed the importance of elaborating clear rules for implementation of the Paris Agreement on Climate with due account of the interests of all signatory countries.
Lavrov called the signing of the Paris Agreement a big event for the UN. "Effectuation of the contributions declared by (the signatory) countries voluntarily should ensure achievement of the goal proclaimed in the agreement, which is to prevent a rise of global temperatures by more than 2 degrees Celsius," he said.
"To get success, it’s necessary now to work out unambiguous rules and procedures that would conduce to implementing the provisions of the Paris Agreement with due account of the interests of all signatory," Lavrov said.
"The launch of market and nonmarket mechanisms if cutting down the greenhouse gas emissions acquires special significance in this context," he said. "In the final run this will have significance for preventing encroachments on competitive environment and for averting relocation of hazardous industrial facilities from one country to another in detriment of sustained development goals."
The Paris Agreement was adopted on December 12, 2015, upon the results of an international conference in Paris. A total of 195 participants in the forum agreed to prevent the rise of an averaged temperature on the planet by more than 2 degrees Celsius by 2100 compared with the pre-industrial epoch.
As many as sixty countries have ratified the document to date. It cannot take legal effect, however, as these countries do not account for the 55% of greenhouse atmospheric emissions - a benchmark parameter that puts the Paris Agreement into effect.
