The negotiations will proceed to final adjustments of the text, Fabius said, noting that he would present a text which "will be as ambitious and balanced as possible".
For the president of the COP21, "the conditions had never been so favorable".
"We will never find a momentum as favorable as in Paris, but now the responsibility lies with ministers who will make their choice tomorrow," Fabius explained.
"When there are 196 Parties on such a complex subject, if every body demands 100 percent, then everybody gets nothing," the French foreign minister said, stressing the importance of having "the spirit of compromise".
Fabius also wanted people to remember the message "the world needs a success" sent by the 150 heads of state and government on the first day of the COP21.
"It is up to the ministers and negotiators now to make this success possible," he noted.
He called on all Parties to take their responsibilities and to adopt the agreement of which "the ultimate goal is to simply allow the humanity to live decently".
