Islamabad: Imran Khan, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, is set to attend the ‘Middle East Green Initiative Summit’ in Riyad on October 25.
According to reports, Prime Minister Khan’s Special Representative for the Middle East, Tahir Ashrafi, has stated that he will attend the event after being invited by Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. The invitation was sent out a few months ago, in July.
The prime minister is also anticipated to hold bilateral discussions with Saudi authorities during his visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi government had already announced the Saudi Green and Middle East Green initiatives in March, with the goal of reducing carbon emissions by 60%. Clean hydrocarbon technology and the planting of 50 billion trees, 10 billion of which will be planted in Saudi Arabia, will be used to achieve this reduction in carbon emissions.
The Saudi plans are in line with Prime Minister Khan’s flagship climate change initiative, and foreign and regional leaders will gather at the summit to further drive “consensus to deliver on shared environmental commitments.”
