    BAGHDAD (AFP) — Iraq has formally ratified the UN's Kyoto Protocol on climate change, according to a government statement seen by AFP on Saturday.

    "The presidential council ratified in its session on January 23 a law according to which the Republic of Iraq will join the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and its Kyoto Protocol," the statement said.

    The Kyoto Protocol legally commits industrialised countries which have signed and ratified it to trim their output of six carbon gases seen as being responsible for global warming.

    Its framework was adopted on December 12, 1997 in Kyoto, Japan, by 159 states that are members of the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

    But it took almost four more years of negotiations to complete its rulebook, and then nearly three more years to get the deal ratified. It took effect on February 16, 2005.
