Statement by Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development
Paris, June 3, 2014

We welcome the announcement by the United States Environmental Protection Agency of plans to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and coal-fired power plants. This measure reflects the American administration’s determination to achieve its 2020 mitigation targets.

It is part of the climate action plan announced by President Obama in June 2013. It complements the progress achieved over the last few years and is fully in line with our collective efforts to reach a comprehensive agreement in Paris in 2015 on combating climate change.
