The Prime Minister of Tuvalu Enele Sopoaga has sent out a strong message to the President of France ahead of the COP 21 meeting in November.
Sopoaga says it is vital for France to know that the water is already lapping on the doorsteps of small Pacific Island countries like Tuvalu.
With Tuvalu being one of the worst affected countries by climate change, Prime Minister Enele Sopoaga is pleading for next month COP 21 summit to be a success.
_"I ask that you pass on the message to the President of France to try his best, failure is not an option for the world on climate change, and ambassador please kindly pass that message to all your leaders in Paris, pass the message that the water is already flapping on every Tuvaluan house and every low lying islands in the pacific."
Speaking at the signing of the delimination of boundries with France and Fiji, Sopoaga says the signing marks another milestone achievement for Tuvalu and Fiji.
France Ambassador Michel Djokovic says the signing today signifies their support to all Pacific Island countries.
The signing of the delimitnation of boundries does not only strengthen ties for these three countries as it also ensures the protection of their boarders from any illegal activities.
