ISLAMABAD: Minister Information Marriyum Aurangzeb said that acceptance of demand for Environmental Justice (EJ) at global level was major diplomatic success of Pakistan. Establishment of global fund to compensate losses of countries affected by climate change was victory for Pakistan’s stance and recognition of its stand, she said in a statement.

“Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif turned deadly effects of climate change on developing countries and flood disasters in Pakistan into global agenda”, she maintained. She said that Pakistan’s stand under leadership of prime minister played decisive role in creating global consensus on issue. Establishment of ‘Loss and Damage Fund’ will help in rehabilitation of flood victims in Pakistan, she remarked. She appreciated United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres for proving to be a benefactor of developing countries. She said efforts of Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Climate Change Minister Sherry Rehman played key role in victory of Pakistan’s position at global level.

Decision to establish a global fund at COP-27 was a historic milestone in protecting planet from ravages of climate change, she said. Marriyum Aurangzeb said world leaders deserve congratulations and tributes for taking decisive and practical steps to save planet. She hoped that this global alliance will play an important role in combating effects of climate change.
