French President Francois Hollande told a joint session of parliament on Monday that the conference would go ahead, to “show that the world must stay united against terrorism.”
Laurent Fabius, the French foreign minister, also said on Saturday that the conference would go ahead, but with enhanced security measures.
“COP 21 must be held. It will be held with reinforced security measures, but it is absolutely essential action against climate change and of course it will be held,” he said, in a statement CNBC translated from the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ website.
