Cuba will ratify the Third Countries' demand for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions at the 13th United Nation Conference on Climate Change underway in the Indonesian island of Bali.

The Cuban delegation is made up of a group of experts led by Cuban vice-minister of Sciences, Technology and Environment, Jose A. Diaz Duque.

"We will reiterate the negative impact of the increase of greenhouse gas emissions, the lack of solidarity with developing countries, which are more vulnerable to climate change and lack financial and technological support," said Diaz Duque.

The Cuban official classified as indispensable the fulfillment of the agreements signed by 36 industrialized countries in 1997 in Kyoto, Japan, aiming to tackle with the issue of global contamination.

He also suggested that those nations should establish new goals at the UN Conference on Climate Change being held in Bali with the participation of representatives from over 180 countries.

Diaz Duque praised Australia's decision to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, which left the United States as the only country around the world that is refusing to sign the environmental global agreement.
