Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb on Tuesday said that acceptance of the demand for environmental justice at the global level was a major diplomatic success of Pakistan.

The establishment of a global fund to compensate the losses of countries affected by climate change was a victory for Pakistan's stance, she said in a statement.

"Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif turned the deadly effects of climate change on developing countries into the global agenda," she maintained.

The establishment of 'Loss and Damage Fund' will help in the rehabilitation of flood victims in Pakistan, she remarked.

She appreciated the United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres for proving to be a benefactor of developing countries.

The minister said the efforts of Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Climate Change Minister Sherry Rehman played a key role in victory of Pakistan's position at the global level.

The decision to establish a global fund at COP-27 was a historic milestone in protecting the planet from the ravages of climate change, she said.

Marriyum Aurangzeb said the world leaders deserve congratulations and tributes for taking decisive and practical steps to save the planet. She hoped that this global alliance will play an important role in combating the effects of climate change.
