United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today welcomed the statement of China, this year’s President of the Group of 20, affirming the G20’s full support for the 22 April signing of the Paris Agreement on climate change, and calling for the accord’s entry into force as early as possible.
“The Secretary-General thanks China for its continued strong leadership in promoting global cooperation, grounded in ambitious national action, on climate change,” said a statement from the office of the UN chief’s spokesperson.
Mr. Ban is also encouraged by the strong political momentum from the more than 130 countries that have confirmed their intention to sign the accord on 22 April, urging all other countries to join them in the signing ceremony to be held at the UN Headquarters, the statement added.
