After the latest terrorist attack on Paris that killed more than 125 people in the city, the French government announced on Monday that it has decided to restrict the United Nations climate change summit to core talks and negotiations.

Earlier on Saturday, Nov. 14, the French Prime Minister announced that the country will not change its plan to host the climate change summit scheduled on Nov. 30 and Dec. 11. Although the focus of the event will still be on reaching a global consensus on limiting the greenhouse gas emission, the country has banned rallies, marches and concerts that were planned earlier as part of the event.

The announcement was made by French Prime Minister Manuel Valls to the RTL radio station, Reuters reports. Valls also revealed that considering the terrorist attack, none of the global leaders have so far asked France to postpone the scheduled event, and it shows that the nations around the world stand in unity to limit the greenhouse gas emissions.

Meanwhile, diplomats across the world appreciate the French government's decision to not postpone the climate change summit, reports E & E News. Diplomats from Maldives and New Zealand said that the recent attacks on innocent citizens is the main reason why the climate change conference must still convene.

With just two weeks left for the conference to start, the French government has given orders to tighten the security in and around the location of the event. More than 110 heads of state are expected to attend the conference, including U.S. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry.

The event will take place at the Le Bourget airfield, which is situated 10 miles away from Paris. The French government is currently reviewing the security measures that it will have in place during the event. As of now, the government has declared a state of emergency and closed all its borders.
