While delivering keynote speech virtually at a high level event on the occasion of the F20 Climate Solutions Week that began on September 14, the prime minister also placed three priority issues.
The F20 and King Khaled Foundation have jointly organising the week. The title of the event was "Resilience and Recovery: Highlighting Solutions for the G20 on Climate and Sustainability".
In this connection, she placed three issues of priority. "Firstly, for successful implementation of 2030 Agenda, addressing climate change is fundamental as both have symbiotic relationships with each other;
"Secondly, we need greater collaboration from international community for unified, stronger and green mechanism to tackle the negative impacts of climate change and uphold sustainability. G20 countries have specific roles to play here.
