PM Benabderrahmane: Addressing climate issues must be based on developed countries commitment to shoulder historical responsibility

Prime Minister, Minister of Finance, Aïmne Benabderrahmane, affirmed today, Monday, in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), that addressing climate issues should be “based on the extent to which developed countries are committed to shouldering their historical responsibility,” taking into account the “differences” that exist between them and developing countries.

In a speech he delivered today, Monday, at the Green Middle East Initiative summit, in his capacity as representative of the President of the Republic, Mr. Abdelmadjid Tebboune, Aïmne Benabderrahmane said that “Algeria, which has previously ratified all international agreements aimed at reducing gas emissions and combating global warming, affirms that addressing climate issues should be based on the extent to which developed countries are committed to shouldering their historical responsibility and taking into account the differences between them and developing countries.”

After he mentioned that this meeting comes in a special situation that the countries of the whole world are going through as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, which made us face new challenges that are added to the package of files and topics that occupy our governments and peoples, he “stressed” the need to “adapt” to find practical solutions to confront the risks that threaten the world, especially those “that arise as a result of compromising the ecological balance due to the non-optimal and irrational exploitation of natural resources in an unequal economic race, which has produced imbalances that the world has agreed on their dire repercussions on the climate.”

The Prime Minister also explained in the same context that these repercussions “will lead, in the short and long term, to a real threat to the lives of people and the economies of countries.”
