Qa-114, 22 November 2020, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding Turkey’s Putting On The Record Its Determination To Obtain A Fair Position Under The International Climate Change Regime In The G20 Leaders' Declaration

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 22.11.2020

Our country attaches great importance to combatting climate change which is a global challenge, and actively contributes to global climate action to this end.

However, as a developing country having a negligible historical responsibility for greenhouse gas emissions (less than 1%), Turkey’s position under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and Paris Agreement, which is the implementation tool of the UNFCCC, is not fair at all.

Our position in this regard has been put on record in the statement annexed to the G20 Leaders' Declaration adopted during the G20 Summit held on 21-22 November 2020 under the Presidency of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The said position, previously reflected to the G20 Energy Ministers Meeting Communique, has been put on record with the agreement of all the countries in the G20 Leaders' Declaration and this way our country's determination to achieve an equal and fair position under the international climate regime in order to contribute more to climate action efforts, is underlined once again.
