The Spanish Minister for the Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera, was convinced today that an agreement will be reached at the climate summit in the coming hours that will satisfy all parties.
Ribera, who has been part of the group of 12 ministers in recent days, whom the Polish presidency of the summit called for "mediation and facilitation", observed that the negotiation has entered a "critical" moment.
The holder of Transition Ecological explained to the journalists that the Polish presidency already has in its power the texts facilitated by the different equipment that have worked during the last days to speed up and unclog the negotiation.
The texts echo all sensitivities, according to Ribera, who said that small adjustments are being made that will allow further progress in the processing and implementation of the Paris Agreement, which has to enter into force in 2020.
The texts are now being scrutinized to check that they do not include "any errors" that jeopardize the adoption of a final agreement.
Ribera valued in that sense the presence again today in Katowice of the Secretary General of the UN, Antonio Guterres, to try to promote the negotiation and an ambitious agreement.
