Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare has made a call to the United states to reconsider its position on the Paris climate agreement and join the global fight against climate change.
The Prime Minister made the statement in his address to the 72nd United Nations General Assembly yesterday.
He said climate change is the Pacific’s biggest enemy and could have far-reaching impacts.
The Prime Minister called on the UN Security Council to address the issue of climate change as it threatens global peace and security.
“We call on all major emitters to meet their national determined contributions in reducing green house emissions,”he said.
“The impacts of climate change currently occurring at an alarming rate at our shores presents a clear and present danger, which might exacerbate the core drivers of conflicts.”
