Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has called on all states and governments across the world to pay serious attention to the “horrible” phenomenon of climate change.
In a Monday statement, the spokesman expressed regret over the deaths of tens of people in Canada over the extreme heat and offered sympathy to the Canadian nation.
He urged all the countries and governments in the world to remain committed to their pledges in addressing the climate change phenomenon.
Qassemi said the issue of climate change and its dire consequences must be taken seriously as it takes the lives of thousands of people annually and leaves various species of animals and plants dead.
He said all the states and governments should fulfil their pledges to address the issue saying the phenomenon is threatening the future of the earth.
Qassemi also blasted the US government for pulling out of international treaties like the Paris Agreement and violating its international commitments.
He then urged all big industrial states to remain committed to their pledges in addressing the issue of climate change saying the states have a share in emitting the greenhouse gas and other pollutants and consequently contributing to the global warming and other natural disasters like droughts and dust storms across the world.
