Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of Algeria Aimene Benabderrahmane drew attention, in a key speech at the Green Middle East Initiative Summit, inaugurated today in Riyadh by His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Crown Prince and Deputy Prime Minister, to the situations that the whole world is going through, as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic, which has doubled the challenges for our governments and peoples, necessitating everyone to join hands to find practical solutions to confront these challenges and dangers that threaten the planet.

He pointed out that the whole world is thankful and praising the initiative of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its qualitative endeavors aimed at creating a common environmental vision to unify efforts to protect the environment and combat climate change in the Middle East and the world.

He stressed that his country fully believes in the importance of protecting the environment and achieving sustainability for it, so it is fully ready to support the Green Middle East Initiative and every similar initiative that would research and find solutions to the problem of the climate change and combating desertification, drought and forest fires.
