Venezuelan President calls for decisions to mitigate climate change

Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, Nov 6 (Prensa Latina) The president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, today called for quick and profound decisions to mitigate and reverse the effects of climate change that threaten life on the planet.

On his Twitter account, the president made that call due to the “destructive and irreversible nature” of this phenomenon. It’s time!, he pointed out.

Upon his arrival in Egypt yesterday to participate in the 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27), being held in the resort of Sharm El Sheikh as of today until November 18, Maduro He expressed that his country brings a firm position to this meeting.

He stated that it is about accelerating the steps to comply with the agreements on climate change signed in previous meetings.

The president announced that he will also call to promote the processes so that the destructive capitalist model is replaced by a humane model, respectful of the living conditions on the planet.

He announced that Venezuela is going to intervene in several work tables and in the central plenary where there are 196 countries, and we are going to take the voice of our peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean, and of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-People’s Trade Treaty.

We are going to accompany the voice of the Caribbean Community, and bring proposals to speed up changes, because it seems that we are entering an irreversible stage of climate change damage, he said.

In his opinion, he thought, the debate should focus on what humanity can do to make a qualitative leap in multilateral agreements.

Maduro commented that the Bolivarian Republic will support the proposal of the Group of 77 plus China on the creation of a climate loss and damage fund at COP27.

‘We agree with the proposal’, so that financing funds are met, especially for the mitigation tasks of the countries of the global South, he stressed.

The first thing we have to demand from the South of the planet is that there be a change in the highly polluting developmentalist systems of the North, of Europe, of the United States, he remarked.
