MOSCOW, September 3. /TASS/. The conference in Anchorage, Alaska, on cooperation in the Arctic has shown the demand for the existing coordination mechanisms, above all, under the auspices of the Arctic Council, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.
The participants in the event "demonstrated their determination to boost international cooperation in the Arctic, readiness to take practical steps to reduce atmospheric emissions and interest in strengthening scientific cooperation on climate research and the development of adequate measures to adapt to its changes."
The Russian Foreign Ministry pointed to the importance of the framework document on reducing emissions of black carbon and methane adopted within the framework of the Arctic Council. Russia was one of the first countries to submit to the Arctic Council on August 26 its national report on these issues, the ministry said. The parties expressed "their shared interest in achieving tangible results at the forthcoming climate conference that will be held in Paris in December."
The Russian delegation called for further expansion of cooperation between the Arctic states, prevention of its politicization and spoke out in favor of the unconditional implementation of joint projects, including in the environmental field.
