MOSCOW, October 6. /TASS/. Russia welcomes the upcoming entry into force of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, Russia’s Foreign Ministry reported Thursday.
"We welcome its upcoming entry into force and believe it to be a reliable international legal basis for long-term climate settlement," the ministry said.
"The key advantage of the Paris Agreement is that it aims to unite the efforts of all countries to achieve the collective goal to reduce emissions," it said.
The ministry recalled that Moscow actively took part in the development of the agreement.
"Its adoption became a milestone event confirming the efficiency of the UN system," the statement said.
On October 5, the official website of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change posted a report that the required number of states have ratified the Paris Agreement and the document will come into force in 30 days.
It was adopted December 12, 2015 following a conference in Paris. A total of 195 forum participants agreed to prevent rising of the planet’s average temperature by 2100 by more than 2 degrees Celsius compared to the preindustrial epoch. Scientists say a greater growth of temperature may lead to irreversible consequences for the environment.
The agreement is to replace the Kyoto Protocol, which should expire in 2020.
