Pakistan should be Invited to the Leaders Summit on Climate


On April 22 and 23″ 40 nations will gather together via video conference to talk about how climate change is affecting the world.

A very glaring omission on the list of invitees is Pakistan. A nation of 250 million-plus people which is highly susceptible to climate change should have been extended an invitation. US President Joe Biden has made the environmental policy a priority.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has done the same in Pakistan with his various initiatives. The two countries can use this commonality of policy as a confidence-building measure to further their cooperation on other issues.

It is important that the Pakistani diaspora engages with their local officials encourages an invitation to Pakistan to this important event.
