Mr. Evan Wasuka, One Television, Solomon Islands
"We have not lived up to so many of the commitments we made in 1992." - Solomon Islands Ambassador to the United Nations, Colin Beck.
BECK: The negotiations on this, the final day have picked up speed in such a way that there is now a sense of urgency amongst all the delegates. We are seeing brackets being closed on a number of issues, certainly on the issue of interest to Pacific countries, in terms of Climate Change and Oceans.
The most important issue that is still being discussed is the Means Of Implementation.
So far things are on track, but this is multilateral negotiations, it can look good but something else happens, all it needs is one state to be difficult on one issue and everything will collapse.
Everybody has come to the realisation that we need to do something, to know that failure, all the investment in talking will come to a waste.
WASUKA: What's the mood like with Pacific members, how do they feel as the negotiations head towards closure?
BECK: Basically its cautious, while we have achieved certain, progress on important sectors, the whole document rests on strategic partnership.
