ALTANYA – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the leaders of the Group of 20 are determined to reach a consensus to help tackle weather change.
“The change in weather is a global issue and the G20 hopes that the COP (Conference of the Parties) 21 in Paris next month will be fruitful unlike COP 15,” he told a press conference after a working dinner in conjunction with the 10th edition of the G20 Summit here.
Najib said that all the leaders taking part in the lunch working session on development and the weather change described the issue as a serious threat that could be hazardous to mankind and not just to certain countries.
The COP 21 Climate Change Conference will be held in Paris from Nov 30 to Dec 11, 2015. The COP 15, which was reported to be a failure, was held in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2009.
Najib, who concluded his three-day working visit in conjunction with the G20 Summit today, had also participated as the ASEAN chairman in the two working sessions, namely on inclusive growth and the global challenges linked to terrorism and the refugee crisis. – BERNAMA
