Dipu Moni lays stress on emission cuts agreement

Foreign Minister Dipu Moni has called upon the world community for a legally binding agreement on emission cuts with participation of all states, developed and developing, to face climate change challenges.
She also called for institutionalisation of global compact in four recognised tracks of action--adaptation, mitigation, financing, and technology transfer.
The foreign minister, who is presently in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, made the calls at a meeting of the 19th Ministerial meeting of Asean Regional Forum (ARF) yesterday, says a press release.
Terming Bangladesh as among the most vulnerable countries to climate change, Dipu Moni laid stress on the engagement of the developed countries for effective action on adaptation and mitigation projects.
She also touched upon the multiple challenges that Bangladesh and the island developing countries are facing due to climate vagaries.
The foreign ministers of all the Asean and major Asia-Pacific countries including China, Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, France, UK, USA, Russia, Canada, India and Pakistan participated in this very important conference.
Meanwhile, the Bangladesh foreign minister had bilateral meetings with her counterparts of China and Myanmar on the sideline of the ARF meeting.
Referring to the 2011 meetings between the Bangladesh prime minister and the president of Myanmar, the foreign ministers of the two countries reaffirmed their commitment to solve the problem of the Rohingya refugees and undocumented Myanmar nationals in Bangladesh at the earliest possible time.
