Turkey was one of only a small handful of States which had not yet ratified the pact.

In its statement, approved by parliament, it said that it would implement the agreement provided that it did not adversely reduce its social and economic development.

Net zero is the point when the amount of greenhouse gases emitted does not exceed the amount that is pulled out of the atmosphere.

The Paris Accord, approved by nearly 200 nations, has obligated signatories to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and, where possible, below 1.5 degrees.

Each country has responsibility to develop its own plan to achieve these objectives.

Five signatories to this deal have yet to ratify it: Eritrea, Iran, Iraq, Libya and Yemen.

It stuck out for years, since the government spoke out against the inclusion of Turkey in Appendix I of a category of developed countries, which means that the country is obliged, for example, to do more for climate than developing countries.
