Iran and the European Union renewed their commitment to the 2015 Paris accord on curbing the global warming.
“Domestic legal procedures are underway to finalize an approval for joining the pact,” head of Iran’s Department of Environment Isa Kalantari told visiting European Commissioner for Energy and Climate Miguel Arias Canete in a meeting on Sunday.
“The Paris agreement has secured initial approval from the government and parliament but the Guardians Council detected some problems which it is trying to address before issuing the final approval,” Kalantari was quoted as saying by DOE’s official news portal.
The council reviews any legislation approved by parliament for conformity with the Constitution and Islamic law.
Under the Paris agreement, the world’s countries commit to tackling climate change by 2030.
