ISLAMABAD, Oct. 13 (Xinhua) -- Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said here on Wednesday that the developed world has a responsibility to help developing countries mitigate the influence of climate change.

"World must help developing countries to cope with climate change impacts," Khan said while chairing a meeting on climate change, adding that despite plethora of challenges, Pakistan has established its credibility in countering climate change by introducing environment-friendly initiatives, especially the 10 Billion Tree Tsunami program for expansion and restoration of the fractured forests in the country.

"International community is acknowledging Pakistan's realistic and tangible steps to mitigate impacts of climate change," the prime minister said.

During the meeting, Khan stressed on reviewing targets and formulating new goals aiming at fast-tracking the steps required to preserve natural environment, emphasizing that preservation of the country's national parks is paramount.

Both the federal and provincial governments should induct trained manpower and utilize modern technology to counter challenges posed by climate change, he said.

The prime minister also directed establishment of a think-tank to coordinate efforts among various ministries and to devise innovative solutions for climate change mitigation. Enditem
