New Delhi, Dec 22 (ANI): Minister of State for Environment and Forests Jairam Ramesh will on Tuesday make a statement in the Rajya Sabha on the Copenhagen Accord.

The Copenhagen Summit has been described as an accord, a non-binding agreement that was arrived at the very last minute by a small group of countries to fight climate change. Both India and China walked out of the summit and this has exposed a failure of leadership when faced with a great global challenge.

After two-weeks of hectic negotiations that continued in the Copenhagen Summit, Jairam Ramesh is expected to put forward the point that the sovereignty of India has been well protected and table the strategies of the Central Government post Copenhagen. (ANI)
