Ramesh: India Will Not Sign Binding Emission Cuts

  • Date: 03/12/09

Reuters: India will not accept a legally binding emission cut nor a peak year of carbon emissions at the global climate talks in Copenhagen, Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh said on Thursday.

“There is no question of India accepting a legally binding emission reduction cut,” he told parliament, laying out India’s negotiating position ahead of the December talks.

India would however accept international verification of reductions if supported by financing and technology transfers.
