Imphal, November 04 2021: The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India has stood in agreement with the United Nations general secretary's statement urging all countries to act together to protect the planet and to save humanity.

As per a statement issued by Communist Party of India, the statement was made at an environmental conference at Glasgow in Scotland.

The Party called for the United States and other developed European countries to strictly adhere to the Paris goals and take urgent measures to reduce emissions to zero level by 2050 and by 2030 up to 45 per cent, adding that these countries are the biggest polluters and hence must take the responsibility of addressing the issue.

China has agreed to reduce emission to zero level by 2060 and India announced to do the same by 2070, the press release added.

The Party further urged the developed countries to assist the developing countries as promised instead of paying lip service and not releasing funds amounting to 100 billion dollars.

The National Secretariat of the CPI also called for the developing countries to have a domestic policy of sustainable development, giving importance to environmental protection.
