France welcomes Paris agreement ratification by India

Paris/New Delhi, Oct 3 (IANS) French President Francois Hollande has welcomed India’s ratification of the Paris Agreement, and recalled the key role India played in adoption of the agreement on climate change in December last year.

Hollande welcomed the ratification of the Paris Agreement by India, on the symbolic day commemorating Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary, said a statement from the French embassy here on Monday.

“This decision, coming after the decision of the Environment Ministers of the European Union, brings us closer to the entry into force of the Paris Agreement before the end of the year,” it quoted Hollande as saying.

Hollande recalled that India played a key role in the adoption of this agreement in December 2015. India also launched, with France, the International Solar Alliance, which will contribute to the realization of the objectives of the Paris Agreement by facilitating access to solar energy, he said.
