Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, President-elect of COP28, UAE Special Envoy for Climate Change and Minister of Industry and Technology, visited Pakistan and discussed issues of mutual concern during his meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister and Minister of Climate Change, Sherry Rehman .

Dr Al Jaber also met with Federal Climate Change Minister Senator Sherry Rahman. The minister congratulated President-elect UAE for hosting the next COP 28 and briefed him on Pakistan’s concerns on global climate change.
