Sánchez asks the G20 leaders not to go back on decarbonization
The president of the Government, Pedro Sanchezhas asked the leaders of the G20 not to use the war in the Ukraine as a “pretext” to go back on the commitments of decarbonization and has insisted that The way out of the energy crisis involves accelerating the ecological transition and the deployment of renewable energy.
“If we can’t reduce emissions faster, we will end up spending much more, or even run out of time. So we must act now”, stressed the Prime Minister during his speech at the opening session of the G20 Summit, focused on food and energy securitywhich takes place on the 15th and 16th Bali.
Sanchez has urged that what is urgent “does not prevent us from acting on what is important”, at the same time that he recalled that the G20 was created to “address global challenges in times of turbulence. “Today we are once again called to shed some light in the midst of the storm. Let’s live up to expectations”, assured the President of the Government.
Thus he began his speech by stressing that the G20, for the first time, is directly affected by the war because one of its members, the Russian Federation, is waging a “brutal and unjustified war of aggression against Ukraine”. Thus, he has stressed once again that Russia must stop the war immediately.
“The food and energy crisis created by the conflict in Ukraine are having devastating economic, social and development effects around the world. 828 million people go to bed hungry every night and energy prices have skyrocketed, putting the security of supply and well-being of millions of homes at risk. The world simply cannot afford it,” said the leader of the Executive.
Thus, before the world leaders, Sánchez has pointed out some the keys to address food safety, such as: coordinate efforts and avoid duplication; avoid export bans and restrictions; and redouble efforts to increase the supply and reduce food prices. Within the framework of the G20 Summit, the Chief Executive will hold a bilateral meeting today with the President of the Republic of China, Xi Jinping, and another with the Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Hsien Loong.
