Président de la République française.
The #COP26 will succeed if the countries with the most resources mobilise 100 billion dollars to support the transition of the countries who have less. France is doing its share, dedicating 7 billion annually to this transition around the globe.
The #COP26 will succeed if the protection of nature, our essential ally against climate disruption, is genuinely enhanced. In France, 30% of our territory is to be protected as of early 2022. I call on our partners to take action to safeguard our vital heritage.
Yes, the #COP26 will succeed if we, States and organisations, do everything in our power to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 with clear, concrete plans of action. Let us all make this commitment. The time for action is now, not tomorrow.
To accelerate vaccination; to stop restricting the export of doses; to have vaccine production on every continent: these were our three messages at the G20 for defeating the pandemic.
In the run-up to #COP26 , the G20 countries are making commitments:
Our house is burning. Literally. The Amazon rain forest - the lungs which produces 20% of our planet’s oxygen - is on fire. It is an international crisis. Members of the G7 Summit, let's discuss this emergency first order in two days! #ActForTheAmazon
I spoke to @JoeBiden to congratulate him on his election. We’ll have a lot to do together to promote shared priorities - climate, global health, international security - and effective multilateral action.
Now that we are together, united, determined to make a difference, it's time to deliver. I'm sure we will, @JoeBiden !
Azerbaijani armed forces have crossed into Armenian territory. They must withdraw immediately. I say again to the Armenian people: France stands with you in solidarity and will continue to do so.
Let’s keep defending our progressive values. Thank you for this discussion @BarackObama .
