Statement of Environment Minister Shri Prakash Javadekar after meeting with Mr Laurent Fabius, French Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development
“Today I held discussions with H.E. Mr Laurent Fabius, French Minister of Foreign Affairs, who is on an official visit to India. The meeting was good and fruitful. We discussed various issues relating to Environment Protection and Climate Change, besides touching upon other issues of mutual interest.

India attaches great importance to the visit of the French Minister as it reflects the commitment of the two sides to further deepen bilateral relations. Today’s meeting is also significant because both India and France look forward to a productive and fruitful outcome in 2015 Paris Climate Conference.

I would like to express my deep gratitude to H.E. Mr Laurent Fabius for assuring that France would act as a facilitator for all the parties to the 2015 Climate conference to create an atmosphere of trust, reconcile viewpoints, and enable the unanimous adoption of a global agreement in Paris.

I am also grateful that H. E Mr Laurent Fabius has agreed to consider a proposal to convene the Ministerial level/High official level meeting, sometimes during the middle of this year, to discuss and sort out issues which often remain unresolved at the negotiator’s level. This shall pave the way to iron out contentious issues and help in adoption of smooth agreement and avoid “huddle” at the Paris Conference.”
