The British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, has telephoned
the prime minister, Sheikh Hasina, and informed her that an adaptation fund has
been created to help Bangladesh and other most vulnerable countries to
calamitous climate change caused by the global warming.
The press secretary to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina , Abul
Kalam Azad, said that the British prime minister phoned Hasina at 3:00pm and
informed her about the latest development, as a summit-level brainstorming over
the most pressing problem of the present times in on steam in Copenhagen.
Hasina thanked her British counterpart for raising the
climate fund for Bangladesh-like countries that bear the brunt of the
consequences of excessive carbon emissions from the developed nations.
‘But this fund is not sufficient. With this money it will not
be possible for Bangladesh and other vulnerable countries to face the
challenges posed by the climate change,’ Hasina was quoted by her press secretary
as having told Brown during the tele-talk.
After two days of intense negotiations and bargaining, European Union leaders gathered in Brussels agreed on funding to help poor countries cope with climate-change problems.
