Press release…

İzmir Commodity Exchange Chairwoman Işınsu Kestelli and Assembly Speaker Barış Kocagöz made a statement on the subject after President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan stated that the Paris Agreement would come to the agenda of the Parliament.

Kestelli and Kocagöz said that the Paris Agreement, which is one of the most important steps in the fight against the climate crisis, whose effects are felt more and more each year, is of vital importance for the future of agriculture and the healthy functioning of agricultural trade.

Kestelli and Kocagöz continued as follows:

The Paris Agreement is not a magic wand, but it is the only tool of this scale to establish international cooperation for global climate action.”

“We need to protect the environmental values ​​felt all over the world much more than before.

We believe that we will do our part as a country by taking steps and fulfilling the relevant regulations,” they added.

“We see the entry into force of the agreement with the approval of the parliament as a big step for our beautiful country, which is located in one of the geographies that will be most affected by climate change, both in order to be protected from this destruction and to create a healthy welfare society,” they concluded…
