BERN (AFP) Jul 09, 2003
Switzerland on Wednesday became the 111th state to ratify the Kyoto Protocol on reducing greenhouse emissions, the Swiss office for the environment, forests and countryside said.

The Swiss mission to the United Nations in New York has now deposited the ratification document for the 1997 agreement, it said.

Under the protocol Switzerland, like the members of the European Union, is to commit itself to cutting its greenhouse gas emissions by eight percent from 1990 levels.
