AOSIS ultimatum to BASIC

cop17.jpg

At an informal meeting today between BASIC and AOSIS, the AOSIS group has reportedly given an ultimatum to BASIC, saying that it will not support BASIC unless the major economies come up with some sort of ambitious mitigation targets.

This points to an indication that AOSIS might be aligning itself with Annexe 1 countries. AOSIS has also hinted that India is aligning it's position with the US. The question that one may ask over here is whether AOSIS is following the EU line.
