Bonn climate negotiations produce new draft text
Paris Climate Conference/negotiation sessions in Bonn – Statement by M. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, President of the Paris Climate Conference
Paris, 23 October 2015
The climate negotiations session in Bonn ended with the publication of a new draft text, longer but more balanced, which puts various options on the table.
Under these circumstances, France will organize a broad, informal ministerial consultation, the pre-COP, from 8 to 10 November, to press forward now that little time is left. It will then be up to us to conclude the negotiation in Paris. As President of COP21, I will be listening to all countries in a spirit of transparency and dialogue, with the firm intention of coming up with the essential ambitious agreement./.
