Article content

ISTANBUL — Turkey’s Parliament ratified the Paris climate agreement on Wednesday, making it the last G20 country to do so, after holding off for years due to what it saw as injustices in its responsibilities as part of the agreement.

Turkey has been a signatory to the Paris agreement since April 2016. The agreement was ratified unanimously by 353 members of Parliament present who voted on Wednesday. (Reporting by Ali Kucukgocmen; Editing by Leslie Adler)
