EU states agree U.N.'s 2015 climate deal ratification

BRUSSELS, Sept 30 (Reuters) - Environment ministers from all 28 European Union states agreed on Friday to a fast-track, collective ratification of last year’s U.N. Paris climate deal, the EU said.

“All member states greenlight early EU ratification of Paris Agreement. What some believed impossible is now real,” tweeted European Council President Donald Tusk, whose home country Poland had been the main state resisting such a swift accord.
