Developed countries urged to finance climate-vulnerable nations

Bangladesh`s Permanent Representative (PR) to the United Nations Masud bin Momen has urged the developed counties responsible for massive carbon emission to finance the climate vulnerable nations.

"The developed countries which are responsible for massive carbon emission should finance the developing countries affected due to climate change," he said.

In this connection, Momen added that Bangladesh, as one of the climatic vulnerable countries, has given priority to deal with the issues of climate change.

The Bangladesh PR made the remarks when he met president of the 70th Session of United Nations General Assembly Mogens Lykketoft at his chamber at the UN Headquarters on Wednesday.

The Bangladesh`s permanent representative informed the UNGA president that Bangladesh would try to engage the UN member states in promoting migration during its chairmanship of Global Forum on Migration and Development next year.

He apprised the UNGA president of the role Bangladesh as the chair of LDCs to protect and promote the interest of LDCs.

Momen said, Bangladesh, as one of the leading troop contributing countries, has been contributing to the global peace and security. Bangladesh has also been actively participating in peace-building commission, he noted.

The UNGA president informed him about his recent engagement in the UN Climate Conference in Paris.

Mogens Lykketoft informed that he would host a high level event to kick start the implementation of both SDGs and climate agreement in April next.

The PR conveyed the greetings of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Jatiya Sangsad Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury and Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali to the UNGA president.

Mogens Lykketoft was the Speaker of the Danish Parliament prior to his present assignment. He also served as foreign minister and finance minister of Denmark.

The PR lauded the role of Mogens Lykketoft in steering the UNGA and the UN as a whole during his tenure.

During his presidency, the UN has observed its 70th anniversary of foundation. It also has been discussing the implementation process of 2030 sustainable development goals.

The PR assured him of the fullest cooperation from Bangladesh to steer this process.
