need binding rules at the heart of the climate agreement. The world does not have any binding
rules at the moment， and therefore， that must be a goal in Paris.″
Ahead of a United Nations climate meeting in France later this year， the G7 agreed
to limit the rise in global temperatures to two degrees Celsius compared to pre－industrial
levels and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 70 percent by 2050.
With regard to the crisis in Ukraine， the seven countries reiterated that sanctions
against Russia will remain in place until a ceasefire deal is fully respected. ″The G7 is making it clear that， if necessary，
we stand ready to impose additional significant sanctions against Russia.″
Talking about the strategy against Islamic State militants in Arab nations， Obama said
the international community is willing to do more to fight against terrorism and violent
extremism. The declaration also strongly condemned North
Korea for its continued development of nuclear and ballistic missile programs and for its
appalling human rights violations. Sohn Jung－in， Arirang News.
