South African Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, addressed the United Nations General Assembly yesterday in New York.

Dlamini Zuma said the world has witnessed the devastating effect of climate change and urged those at the assembly to respond urgently.

Foreign Affairs have set out an urgent plan in Bali last year to combat climate change.

“It is our hope that the negotiations to be completed in Copenhagen 2009 will necessarily set the stage for more action by all countries to address climate change and all its manifestations.”

Dlamini Zuma continued by saying that South Africa has committed itself to approach the preparations for Copenhagen constructively, and to reach an agreement that is ambitious, balanced and conclusive.
