On Friday, the 193-member Assembly adopted the Pakistan-sponsored resolution by consensus. The text was co-sponsored by a large number of countries – 159 – from all regions of the world.
Bilawal said that at this point in time when the geo-political division had become so vivid, we are grateful to America, China and Russia for their participation in a group of countries that presented the resolution.
He also expressed his gratitude to the UN Secretary-General, UN President and officials of Pakistan mission at the United Nations for their support for the resolution.
According to the resolution, “Countries, like Pakistan, which confront such climate-induced disasters should not be left to fend for themselves, dependent on the generosity and charity of friends … we must construct mechanisms that can enable climate-struck countries to access resources to mitigate the impacts of the ever more frequent and more intense climate disasters and to recover quickly from such disasters
