US President Joe Biden has invited Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. The invitation of the US President to take part in the climate conference. At the same time, he has invited 39 more world leaders. A two-day virtual conference is being organized from April 22, the White House said in a statement on Friday.

The Paris Agreement was signed in 2015 with the goal of reducing global temperatures by two degrees in the current century to address the climate crisis. In 2020, the then President of the United States Donald Trump withdrew from the agreement. But after Biden became president, the United States returned to that agreement. The conference is organized to commemorate the return. The two-day conference will start on the day of Earth Day on April 22.

The conference will be broadcast live in the international media for the world to see. In this context, White House officials say it will be a major milestone on the way to the UN Climate Change Conference to be held in Glasgow, Scotland next November. The White House says the United States will set a goal of reducing carbon emissions by 2030. Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping, Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga are among those invited to the conference. Powerful leaders such as Jair Bolsonaro, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia, and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Joe Biden called on the invited leaders to use the conference as an opportunity to outline how countries can contribute to global climate change. Bangladesh is one of the countries most affected by natural disasters as a result of climate change. This is mainly due to the industrialized countries, whose pollution causes most of the disasters. For this reason, the participation of countries like Bangladesh in the conference is very important.

On the one hand, as a country that has successfully moved forward in tackling the crisis, Bangladesh will be able to present their management strategies. On the other hand, the US President has invited strong leaders to deal with the global climate crisis, especially the heads of government of some of the most vulnerable countries in the global crisis. Representatives from business and civil society will also attend the virtual conference, the White House said.
