Turkey ratifies the Paris climate agreement, becoming the last G20 country to do so

On Wednesday evening, the Turkish parliament passed a bill to ratify the Paris climate agreement, making Turkey the last country in the “G20” group to do so.

The Turkish parliament approved the bill on ratifying the Paris climate agreement unanimously in a vote of 353 members.

The United Nations adopted the Paris Climate Agreement in 2015 to announce the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, preventing the average annual global temperature on the planet from rising by more than two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by 2100, and taking measures to keep warming within limits. 1.5 degrees.

Turkey signed the agreement in April 2016, but has ignored it for years because of what it saw as an unfairness in its responsibilities under the document.

In his speech on September 22 before the United Nations General Assembly, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that his country would ratify the Paris climate agreement after a month, after it was presented to Parliament, in which his party has a majority.
