The Republic of the Congo believes that climate change is not a pressing issue and we will not expend resources to fight such a threat. Furthermore we require our trade and distribution of our nation's natural resources to support our economy. Any anti-climate change that hinders our trade will not be supported by the Republic of the Congo. The petroleum extraction of the Republic of the Congo is a driving factor in our offense towards such bold climate action. Without it, our nation loses a natural resource we could be trading and using ourselves. The Republic of the Congo is not developed enough to allow such a hit to our economic growth.
