The Fijian Parliament Friday unanimously ratified the Paris Climate change agreement that was signed by world leaders in France in December 2015.
The motion was brought to Parliament by the Acting Minister for Foreign Affairs and Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum.
Khaiyum told Parliament that the Fijian government has received correspondence from the United Nation on the need for the Fijian Parliament to ratify the Paris Agreement to be signed in New York on 22 April.
He said Fiji's Prime Minister Minister Voreqe Bainimarama will be in New York in April to sign the agreement with world leaders.
Khaiyum told Parliament Fiji is the first Pacific nation to ratify the agreement since the Paris Climate change was adopted last year.
He also thanked the Opposition for their support saying the effects of climate change facing vulnerable Pacific island states is a reality and the urgency to ratify the agreement is a priority.
