President Rouhani said that resolution environmental problems require regional cooperation in the form of multilateral conventions.
In his address, the Iranian President expressed sincere appreciations for holding the Summit and said the Summit provides a unique opportunity for addressing climate change as one of the most significant challenges of the 21st century.
The rise in the temperature and its negative impact on rain precipitation in the Middle East, the chronic drought and water scarcity has led to an increase in poverty and the occurrence of instability and tensions in the border areas, said President Rouhani.
Unfortunately, the continuation of political disputes and war in the neighboring countries has become an obstacle in achieving a durable and practical agreement on the resolution of regional environment problems, he said.
Addressing such issues requires regional cooperation in the form of multilateral conventions, for which Iran is ready to engage constructively, said President Rouhani.
Historical experience has shown that introduction and utilization of economic mechanisms are the most effective source of inspiration for humanitarian activities across the globe, said President Rouhani.
This helps develop international mechanisms for containing Carbon Dioxide and emission of other green-house gases, he said.
A 'System of warning and advice cannot by itself be considered as an effective factor in addressing such problems, he said.
"I wish that all efforts put in by the UN and the effective participation of all states, the Summit becomes a turning point in taking common but differentiated measures to save this green planet," said the President.
