Lithuania supported the idea proposed by France that an agreement should be drafted, which would include various elements, combining and, in light of the new challenges, complementing the existing international environmental law.

According to the press release, the Global Pact for the Environment should become a legally binding and universally applicable agreement, proclaiming a body of fundamental environmental rights to be protected, as well as core principles for environmental law.
