  • Being an effective voice on climate change, PM Shehbaz has received this honour out of 195 countries.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has been entrusted to Co-Chair the 27th UN Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP-27) along with the Egyptian President and Norwegian Prime Minister.

The premier has received this honour out of 195 countries, the statement released by the Prime Minister House said, adding that Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi has also invited PM Shehbaz to co-chair the COP-27 meeting.

Following the massive devastations caused by catastrophic floods in Pakistan, PM Shehbaz has raised the issue on several international platforms, including the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly and Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.

“Humbled by the invitation to co-chair the COP27 roundtable in Egypt next month,” the premier said, appreciating that the world is acknowledging the severity of the climate challenge that threatens to stunt our civilization and development.

“We need to turn this realisation into concrete action to combat climate change,” PM Shehbaz wrote on Twitter.

About 90 heads of state have confirmed attendance at November’s COP27 climate negotiations in Egypt where they will address issues, including energy transition and food security at opening sessions.

Egypt is taking over the presidency of the UN climate talks from Britain and will host the talks from November 6-18 in the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

PM Shehbaz is expected to hold bilateral meetings with world leaders, heads of state and heads of international financial institutions.

Topics for leaders’ roundtables to be held on November 7-8 would include the development of green hydrogen, water and food security, achieving a just energy transition towards renewables, and vulnerable communities.

Information suggests that court magistrate Malik Muhammad Imran exonerated Imran Khan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and Sheikh Rasheed, the chief of AML, in addition to announcing the reserved verdict.

Acquittal of Sadaqat Abbasi and Ali Nawaz Awan from the Azadi March case was also ordered by the court.

It should be mentioned that numerous prominent members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), like as Shah Mahmood Qureshi, former prime minister Imran Khan, and others, were apprehended by the police in separate complaint letters pertaining to the Azadi March.

Following unrest between police and the PTI leader in the provincial capital, 42 charges were filed against PTI senior leaders and workers for agitation.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) had previously found former prime minister Imran Khan and PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi not guilty in a case involving ciphers.

Decisions on appeals from the cipher case’s conviction were announced by Chief Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb of the IHC.

The party’s vice-chairman and founder, who was convicted in a similar case in January of this year, received 10-year prison sentences apiece.

On the other hand, Qureshi’s arrest in the crimes that occurred on May 9th and Imran’s sentences in the Toshakhana and Iddat cases mean that they are unlikely to be released from prison anytime soon.
