She cited the intervention of Cuban First Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel, during the event that initiated the Conference, when he stated that Paris agreement must entail a firm global commitment to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.
It also should entail the establishment of a renewed framework for international cooperation, to ensure the provision of resources and technology transfer to enable developing countries to comply with the provisions of the agreement.
