The 25th UN Climate Change Conference (COP25) disappointed expectations with its final decision released Saturday after protracted negotiations among participating delegations. reports citing Turkish media.

Talks were extended two days for the representatives of 197 UN member countries to agree on a final statement after official meetings of the COP25 on December 2-13.

Countries with different approaches to fighting climate change were unable to overcome differences in national interests over the distribution of global carbon emissions, environmental integrity and financing.

The only notable article of the final declaration was the emphasis on reducing the gap between member countries's carbon emissions by 2020.

Many environmental organizations describes COP25 as "a disappointing summit” and “below expectations".

The climate conference had been set to take place in Santiago, Chile, but was moved to Spain's capital Madrid due to the unrest in the Chilean capital Santiago.

The COP25 Summit is being billed as a run-up to the COP26 in Glasgow city of Scotland next year.
