This deal is a major win for the global community”, Commissioner Miguel Arias Cañete said at the press conference on the results of COP21 climate conference in Paris, Caspian Energy News ( reports with reference to the press statement of the European Commission.

“The Paris agreement is the first-ever truly global climate deal. Paris is also about diplomacy, geopolitics and influence. And in this context, Paris is a major win for Europe and its allies. Paris is the culmination of years of efforts by Europe for a universal multilateral agreement on climate change.

Europe has been a strong voice for ambition, bringing the European experience of effective climate policy and our tradition of negotiations and rules-based international cooperation.

Before Paris, and in Paris, Europe has been at the heart of the High Ambition Coalition of developed and developing countries. Together, we helped shape the successful outcome of this conference”, Cañete resumed.
