Statements to the press by M. Laurent Fabius, French Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, President of the Paris Climate Conference

Le Bourget, December 11, 2015

We finished this collective work at six o’clock this morning, and I will resume my consultations with all the groups, as normal, in the coming minutes.

We both, the United Nations Secretary-General and I, wanted to speak because this is an agreement of the utmost importance and the Secretary-General is very committed to it, both personally and in his capacity as leader of the UN.

I will hand over to him now, but allow me to say quite simply that we are almost at the finish line, that I am optimistic, that the conditions for preparing this ambitious agreement have been very good, and that, following the consultations I am going to carry out, I will be able, tomorrow morning at nine o’clock, to present a text to all the parties, which I am sure will be approved and will be a great step forward for all mankind./.
