Pakistan not invited to the US climate change summit

Pakistan not invited to the US climate change summit

The USA President Joe Biden has called on 40 heads of states and governments to a virtual summit for climate change that is to be held from April 22nd to April 23rd this year. An announcement made by the White House leaders of Argentina, India, Bhutan, Australia, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Denmark, China, and others will address this virtual summit. But to a great surprise to the civil society and environmental protection activists, Pakistan was not invited to this summit. Especially when Pakistan is the 5th most vulnerable country to climate change according to the Global Climate Risk Index. According to some notable journalists, this exclusion was not a surprise because an ex-US envoy mentioned at the Islamabad dialogue that Pakistan has lost a great deal of importance in the eyes of the leadership of Washington. The foreign office spokesman stated that Pakistan is not invited to this summit because it is one of the lowest emitters of pollution as it produces less than 1 percent of global emissions.
