posted on October 16, 2015

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says the country will do its best to have a new framework to fight global warming agreed on at an annual UN conference starting at the end of next month in Paris.

Abe was speaking at a conference of an international environmental NGO in Tokyo on Thursday.

He said global-scale action is needed to tackle climate change and that he shares a sense of crisis with leaders of industrialized nations, islands and other countries.

Abe said Japan will do all it can in Paris to forge a new global framework that is fair, effective and participated in by all countries.
