We are moving in the direction of a significant accord, says ObamaCopenhagen, Dec. 19 : Just as a climate deal was reached between the United States and BASIC (Brazil, South Africa, India, and China) group, it is being described as a "meaningful agreement" at the Copenhagen climate summit.

According to US President Barack Obama, the deal would be a foundation for global action but there was "much further to go".

Obama said the US, China, Brazil, India and South Africa had "agreed to set a mitigation target to limit warming to no more than 2C and, importantly, to take action to meet this objective".

"We are confident that we are moving in the direction of a significant accord," Obama was quoted by B. B. C. as saying in a report.

The deal was a "historic step forward" but was not enough to prevent dangerous climate change in the future, a US government official was quoted by the report as saying. (ANI)
