On a visit to Mozambique, the UN Secretary-General highlighted that this country is one of the least polluting in the world and therefore has the right to demand 'strong support' from the rest of the world.
António Guterres defended today that Mozambique has the right to demand solidarity and support from the international community in the occurrence of natural disasters, noting that the country is one of the least polluting in the world.
'Mozambique practically does not contribute to climate change or global warming, but is among the main victims of these phenomena. This gives it the right to demand strong solidarity and support from the international community', said António Guterres.
The UN Secretary-General spoke moments after being welcomed by the Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi as part of a three-day visit to Mozambique.
