COP21: A historic agreement but imperfect for international leaders

An understanding signed by over 190 countries, representing "the beginning more than the end of a fight" for the French President, François Hollande, who announced a review of the expected goals of pollutant emissions before 2020, the date of entry into force of the agreement.

In the United States, Barack Obama, welcomed the message of Unity expressed at the Summit.

"The Paris agreement establishes the enduring essential framework to solve the climate crisis. This agreement represents the best opportunity to date to save the only planet we have. "

For China's Special Envoy for climate change, Xie Zhenhua, "it is true that the agreement isn't perfect and it needs improvement in some areas. However, this does not prevent us from carrying out a new historic step ".

For the Indian Environment Minister, Prakash Javadekar, "making concessions is normal during some negotiations, that's why we think this agreement could have been more ambitious.

To the representative of the Maldives, a territory directly threatened by the rising waters, "this is a historic agreement although it is important to remember that we will be judged by history, not by what we did today, but by what we do from now on, the way future generations will evaluate the Paris agreement".

The agreement should be adopted officially at a ceremony scheduled for April 22 next year, at United Nations Headquarters in New York.
