President Áder, king of Sweden discuss climate change in Stockholm
Hungarian President János Áder discussed ocean pollution, overfishing and Sweden’s commitments to fighting climate change made at the 2015 Paris climate summit with Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf in Stockholm on Tuesday.
Based on Sweden’s economic strength, its commitment to cut its domestic greenhouse gas emissions by 85 percent from 1990 levels by 2045 “seems realistic”, Áder told Hungarian public media after his talks, which he said tied into the ongoing World Water Week in Stockholm.
Áder said Hungary could learn from Sweden, where he said there is broad consensus on decisions affecting future generations.
Later in the evening, Áder attended the Junior Water Prize award ceremony, where Hungary were represented by the Szent László Grammar School.
