MALE, Jan 14 (HNS) – President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom has received a letter from British Prime Minister Tony Blair about international action against global warming and sea level rise, the President’s Office said Monday.

Blair was responding to a letter from Gayoom following the British PM’s call for universal ratification of the Kyoto Protocol during the World Summit on Sustainable Development held in Johannesburg last year.

 

Highlighting the threat posed to the survival of Maldives by environmental degradation, particularly by global warming and sea level rise, President Gayoom, in his letter to Blair, had stressed the vital importance for the future safety of Maldives and its people of the early entry in to force of the Kyoto Protocol and achieving a meaningful reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases.

 

Blair replied by saying that the United Kingdom had already made a good start by reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 13 percent below 1990 levels, and said that the UK would continue to make progress in that regard. He further said that success at global level would only come from concerted international action, and that there was significant common ground between small island developing states and the UK that should be explored in that global endeavour.
