The leaders of China and EU issued a joint statement for the Paris climate Convention. As it became known to the BBC, the statement stressed that China and the EU is strongly committed to encouraging compliance with the Convention.
The statement on which the EU and China worked for about a year, will be published after publications that the US President Donald trump made the decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate Convention, which regulates measures to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
The Paris climate Convention entered into force on 4 November 2016. It is designed to replace the Kyoto Protocol, which expires in 2020. The Convention calls to prevent a rise in average temperature more than two degrees Celsius until the end of the XXI century. Unlike the Kyoto Protocol, the new agreement does not set emissions limits depending on the level of industrial development of different countries, and also leaves to the discretion of governments in setting policy in this area.
