Kuwait Amir's Rep. echoes commitment to Gulf, int'l environment resolutions

His Highness the Amir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah's Representative, His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Meshal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, on Monday, restated Kuwait's commitment to Gulf, regional and international environment resolutions and initiatives. Addressing the UN climate summit COP27, held in Egypt's Red Sea resort city of Sharm El-Sheikh, His Highness Sheikh Meshal Al-Ahmad cited Kuwait's new vision 2035 as a core pillar based on sustainable living environment aiming at accomplishing environmental sustainability and honoring international environmental commitments. He also underlined that Kuwait honors all criteria of cooperation with the United Nations (UN) in the implementation of environmental projects, including Clean Fuel, Al-Zour Refinery, Sulphur Handling Facilities, and Fifth Liquefied Natural Gas Line. He voiced hope that the aspired goals of the first and second editions of the Middle East Green Initiative would bear fruit, expressing sincere thanks and appreciation to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for launching the second edition of the initiative. His Highness the Amir's representative spoke highly of this initiative as a significant turning point for the Middle East in view of climate action, and as a springboard for regional cooperation in the fight against climate change impacts. He regarded this as proof of the willingness of the region's countries to comply with the Paris Agreement and to attain sustainable development goals for 2030. In this regard, His Highness Sheikh Meshal Al-Ahmad stressed that the Middle East Green Initiative, spearheaded by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, would unquestionably fulfil a lot of environmental aspirations at both regional and international levels by the meaning of having a uniform vision. He reaffirmed Kuwait's fervent efforts to implement promising projects through this initiative, aiming at expanding green areas through afforestation, natural reserves, and ecotourism, thus leading up to carbon neutrality in the middle of this century. This, he maintained, would serve the environment, create mega economic opportunities for generations to come, and provide fresh vistas for a sustainable green future.
