Jayanthi Natarajan's statement in Durban on the issue of a new legally binding treaty


"I have come to Durban with an open mind. But I would like to know whether it would be binding only for mitigation and whether it will be the same for Annex-1 and non-Annex1 countries.

Commitment for finance and technology, whether it will be present or not, how will equity figure in such an agreement, how will IPR be handled, could we reassure each other against unilateral actions in such a treaty, how will the ratification process of Kyoto Protocol be resolved. Most importantly, at this time of our development, we need to keep the imperatives of a developing country and the need to grow in mind."
