Berlin, Dec 17 (Xinhua)
German Chancellor Angela Merkel welcomed the agreement reached at the United Nations climate talks COP24 in Katowice as “an important signal for multilateralism”, government spokesman Steffen Seibert said here on Monday.According to Seibert, the outcome of the climate conference proves that it is possible to reach a “global consensus” on climate protection which is “particularly important” to countries suffering from the consequences of climate change.

On Saturday, 196 countries and the European Union agreed on a set of rules for the implementation of the Paris Climate Protection Agreement, which was adopted back in 2015.

The agreement seeks to implement uniform measurements of CO2 emissions and regular reporting by the signatory countries.

“The negotiating partners in Katowice have thus shown that efforts in climate protection can be successful if the international community works together,” said the spokesman.
