India firm not to let climate talks fail

By The Assam Tribune

PARIS, Dec 6 - Ahead of key ministerial talks, India today said it is determined not to make the Paris climate meet like past summits where nations returned with �false optimism and fictitious hopes� and would ensure that rich countries pay back their �debt for overdraft� drawn on the carbon space.

The statement comes a day before the crucial high level segment gets underway where ministers of 195 countries will deliberate on the draft negotiating text which emerged yesterday to reach a final agreement to tackle the challenge of climate change.

Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar said although nations are �midway� in their journey to reach a new climate agreement, substance-wise it is �sometimes at crossroads� while hinting at the unresolved issues in the draft negotiating text. � PTI
