COP21: Polish economy needs to be protected

Nearly 150 world leaders are meeting in Paris at the COP21, an annual forum, to try to tackle climate change. Their mission is to agree on legally binding reductions of greenhouse house emissions.

Poland’s Prime Minister, Beata Szydło said ahead the conference that Poland wants the agreement to include the country’s expectations.

“There are two demands. Firstly, we want the accord to be signed by all countries. The EU can not be the only entity burdened with costs and responsibilities.” Secondly, Beata Szydło said that the interests of signatory states must be considered. “The Polish economy needs to be protected,” she stated.

Poland will sign the deal, once these two requirements are met, the Prime Minister said.
