Communiqué issued by the Presidency of the Republic.
Paris, 02 October 2016
The President of the Republic welcomes the ratification of the Paris Agreement by India, on this symbolic day commemorating Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday.
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.
François Hollande recalls 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.
