كانت اتفاقية باريس التاريخية بشأن تغير المناخ إنجازا مهما على صعيد الجهود متعددة الأطراف والتي يمكن للاتحاد الأوروبي و مصر، بل ينبغي أن يكونا فخوران بها. يعد التقدم الذي أحرز بشأن التصديق على الاتفاقية تقدما مذهلا؛ حيث دخلت حيز النفاذ في الرابع من نوفمبر من العام الماضي، إلا أن 148 دولة قد صدقت عليها بالفعل. نحن نرحب ونقدر إتمام إجراءات التصديق الداخلية بمصر على اتفاقية باريس.

The landmark Paris Agreement on climate change was a key achievement of multilateralism, of which both the EU and Egypt can and should be proud. The progress on ratification has been extraordinary - the Paris Agreement entered into force on 4th November last year and 148 countries have already ratified it. We welcome and appreciate the finalization of the internal ratification process of the Paris Agreement in Egypt.
