Biggest polluters must pay greater price: PM


PARIS: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday said that countries with deeper carbon footprints and history of large emissions need to shoulder the greatest burden of climate change as he affirmed Pakistan’s commitment to the development of a responsive global climate change framework.

“Stemming the tide of climate change is a global challenge that requires collective action. Our responsibilities, however, are not evenly spread,” Nawaz said while addressing world leaders at the two-week 21st UN Climate Change Conference (COP21) which kicked-off near the French capital on Monday.
