Migration of the people from Maldives will not be among my discussions in Rio+ 20- President
President Dr. Mohamed Waheed has said that he will not hold discussions on the migrating of the people of Maldives in the Rio+20 Summit.
Speaking to the press before the President’s departure to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to participate in Rio+20 Summit, United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, President Dr. Waheed said that to speak discuss on how to migrate the people of Maldives to another country is irresponsible and foolhardy.
Answering a question asked by Miadhu Daily, the President said that the Maldives is very concerned with the issue of the rising of the sea level due to climate change.
“The sea level is rising. Maldives is very concerned regarding this matter. However it is not time to talk and discuss on abandoning Maldives and migrating to another country. Now we have to discuss on migrating the people of smaller islands to the bigger islands…,” he said.
The President has said that the main objective of the Maldives taking part at the summit was to bring to the attention in the global arena, climate change issues and its effects to the Maldives, and secure further cooperation and support from the international community, to combat the environmental challenges.
