Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a government decision to ratify the Paris Climate Agreement.

Medvedev said in a statement quoted by the Russian news agency (Sputnik) on Monday that he had signed a government decision to adopt the climate agreement.

The Paris Agreement is a convention concluded by 196 countries on April 22, 2016, under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC); it highlights issues related to greenhouse gas emissions.

The agreement aims to limit the average global temperature rise to below 2 degrees Celsius above the preindustrial level. Agreement also provides for more financial resources to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and develop resilience to climate change.
