French ex-FM Fabius says will quit as head of UN climate forum

Paris: Former French foreign minister Laurent Fabius will step down as head of COP21, the UN`s climate forum, after being appointed head of France`s constitutional court, according to a resignation letter seen by AFP.

Fabius wrote on Monday to President Francois Hollande "to tender (his) resignation" as head of COP21, a post in which he helped to steer the troubled UN climate talks to a successful conclusion last December.

Fabius had expected to stay in the one-year post until November but drew flak in the French political arena for seeking to hold on to two demanding jobs at the same time.
