The President of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, H.E. Dr. Hilda C. Heine, issued the below statement today following recent developments in the United States:


“A President’s job is to protect their citizens, grow the economy and pave the way for future generations. Acting on climate change is the best way to do all of this.”

“While we are extremely disappointed to see the United States seeking to roll back its efforts to reduce emissions, we are heartened to see the rest of the world remains firmly committed to the Paris Agreement and to reaping the enormous opportunities that come with it.”

“My country’s survival depends on every country delivering on the promises they made in Paris – our own commitment to it will never waiver.” [/restrict]
