Be My Online Guest: US Invites Pakistan to the Climate Change Conference

Pakistan has finally been invited by the United States to the Climate Change Conference on Monday, while initially Pakistan was not included to the list.

The exclusion of Pakistan from the summit was frowned upon by Pakistan for obvious reasons. Since Pakistan is the biggest recipient of calamities caused by climate change, it deserved to be included. Expressing the distaste Prime Minister Imran Khan had said that he was “puzzled at the cacophony”.

He went on to say,

“[Pakistani] government’s environmental policies are driven solely by our commitment to our future generations of a clean and green Pakistan to mitigate the impact of climate change.” The omission of Pakistan from the list of invitees to the conference had raised concerns as the country is among those most vulnerable to climate change.

However, after a few weeks, US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry penned a letter to the Federal Minister and Adviser to Prime Minister of Pakistan on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam.

The special envoy invited Aslam on behalf of the US President to express his views on climate change during the summit.

“The meeting aims to find ways to strengthen joint global efforts against the climate crisis,” the letter from the US official to Aslam said.

“At the summit, the United States will set a 2030 target for the Paris Agreement,” the letter said, adding: “The heads of the countries most affected by climate change have also been invited to the meeting.”

The United States has invited global leaders, including the leaders of China and Russia, to participate in a summit on climate change in April. Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin are among the 40 world leaders invited to the summit, to be held on April 22-23, according to a White House statement.
