|Dubai, - President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said Indonesia hails the endorsement of the Copenhagen Accord concept to be part of the UN climate change summit.|
|"Shortly before the plane took off I received a phone call from the foreign minister who along with the chairman of the Indonesian delegation took part in the plenary session. In his report he said the concept of the so-called Copenhagen Accord prepared by 26 countries in the past two days was accepted at the plenary session," the president said on Saturday (19/12/2009) night in a press conference during a stopover in Dubai on his flight from Copenhagen to Jakarta.|
The president said shortly before he called the press conference he had phoned chairman of the Indonesian delegation to the UN climate change talks Rachmat Witoelar to ask about latest developments.
"I have just been in talks with Rachmat Witoelar. He said discussions were underway to synchronize what has been endorsed," he said.
Although the Indonesian delegation to the summit was still unsatisfied with a number of things, the government felt relief that the country's proposal for the inclusion of measurement, reporting, verifying (MRV) point in the accord had been accepted.
"MRV is designed to ensure that all targets must be met. The obligation applies to all developed and developing nations. We want the concept implemented and delivered well. Don't leave it unimplemented," he said. (ANTARA)
