Iraq has reservations over an item in COP28’s final deal – statement


Dubai (Reuters) – Iraq has reservations over an item in the final COP28 deal that restricts its capabilities to work “to implement its commitments to the Iraqi people and national interests”, according to a government statement on Thursday.

The government praised the efforts of the Iraqi negotiators who it said were able to preserve the role of fossil fuels as a tool for development and prevented the adoption of texts sought by some developed countries which are “harmful to the interests of our peoples”.
