India: 13 nations speak their mind on climate change burden

Hindu, The

Climate change negotiators from 13 Like-Minded Developing Countries (LMDCs) adopted a statement in India on Tuesday calling for developed nations to not pass on the financial burden of climate action on developing countries and supporting their efforts to mitigate climate change by contributing climate finance, reports the Hindu.

Addressing the concluding session of the two-day meet, Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar hoped that the Bonn session in October will come out with an equitable, acceptable, pragmatic text and not a lopsided one. “The Paris climate summit can be a success, only if nations do not indulge in a blame-game,” he said. The 13 participating nations are Argentina, Bolivia, China, Cuba, El Salvador, Ecuador, Iran, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Malaysia, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia and India.
