The following words were just delivered by United Nations Secretary-General at the Pacific Islands Forum...
I am here to focus on two fundamental challenges for your region and for our world: first, the increasingly severe impacts of climate change, and second, the deepening threats to the world’s oceans and seas.
As you know all too well, the Pacific region is on the frontline of climate change.
That means you are also our important allies in the fight against it.
In the days ahead, I will also visit Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
