Iran Supports India’s Stance at UN Climate Summit

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran reaffirmed its support for India's position on fossil fuel subsidies at the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow, the UK.

“We are not satisfied on paragraph 36 on the phase out of fossil fuel subsidies. We support the Indian delegation related to fossil fuels,” the Iranian delegation told the United Nations climate summit in Glasgow.

Iran also criticized richer nations over the pledge.

Earlier, India's Environment and Climate Minister Bhupender Yadaf said he did not agree with the draft agreement on fossil fuel subsidies and that the draft was unbalanced.

The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, more commonly referred to as COP26, was the 26th United Nations Climate Change conference. It was held at the SEC Centre in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom, between 31 October and 13 November 2021, under the presidency of Alok Sharma. It was delayed for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
