EAEU urged to develop measures to respond to climate challenges

MOSCOW, 25 May (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko called on the EAEU to develop its own measures to respond to climate challenges, BelTA has learned.

"I would also like to touch upon a relatively new, but very relevant aspect of our integration - the EAEU climate agenda," the president said.

He noted that the European Union has been actively preparing for trade in the current conditions for a number of years. The mechanism of cross-border carbon regulation being developed by the European Union will become a serious tool for influencing international trade. "The European Union will have an additional room for maneuver. Goods recognized as ‘clean' will be allowed to the market and those that are not in demand in their market will simply be blocked," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

In this regard, the head of state urged to unite efforts within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union and develop their own approaches and measures to respond to climate challenges. “We need to move towards the structure of the economy which is dominated by industries and technologies with low greenhouse gas emissions," the Belarusian leader said.
