"It is unfortunate that our forest cover is very less when compared with other regional countries as this matter was neglected in the past," the premier said. "We have to turn Pakistan green to fight global warming and offset the impact of pollution."

He added that it would bring a revolution if each person plants at least one sapling during the next three weeks. The premier also said that he had directed the commissioners and deputy commissioners to ensure plantation at empty spaces in urban areas.

"Our aim is to leave behind a better Pakistan for future generations," the prime minister stressed. "Government's ten billion tree Tsunami project as well as plantation of one billion trees in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is widely acknowledged across the world."

He further added that Pakistan was now recognized as a leading country that was taking steps to reverse carbon emissions.
