Russia calls for draft of new int'l climate agreement

Russia complies with all of its obligations under the Kyoto Protocol but calls for prompt steps to draft a new international climate agreement, presidential chief of staff Sergei Ivanov said at the Eco Forum Global Annual Conference 2014 in Guiyang, the capital city of Southwestern China's Guizhou Province, on Friday, July 11, reports ITAR-TASS.

"Russia is one of the leaders in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and is calling for quick steps to draft a new climate agreement that would be universal in scope and comprehensive in nature," he said.

Ivanov believes that a new agreement may contain different climate obligations for industrialised and developing nations.
