Newsline: Saudi Arabia Names Veteran Diplomat as New Climate Envoy

Saudi Arabia appointed a veteran diplomat and former ambassador to the US as climate envoy, a task that had previously been mostly managed by the same ministry that controls oil production. (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-05-29/saudi-arabia-names-veteran-diplomat-as-new-climate-envoy) Adel Al-Jubeir, minister of state for overseas affairs, will tackle the function along with his present job, in keeping with a royal order issued on Sunday. Al-Jubeir had beforehand served as overseas minister — a separate title. Al-Jubeir held key diplomacy positions throughout a interval that noticed heavy lobbying from the US authorities to persuade international locations that have been usually reticent to assist a worldwide local weather pact to as an alternative signal on. The Paris local weather settlement was signed by virtually each nation on the earth and it was ratified in November 2016. It wasn’t instantly clear what the appointment means for the local weather coverage of the world’s largest crude oil exporter — which has usually been directed by officers in its Ministry of Vitality.
