Nauru welcomes UNSC climate change position

Pacific Beat RADIO AUSTRALIA  Updated July 27, 2011 16:59:01

Nauru's President says a United Nations Security Council meeting in New York has taken a step towards recognising climate change as a global security threat. Marcus Stephen says they didn't go as far as Nauru and other small island states would have liked. There had been talk of setting up a United Nations force which could intervene in conflicts caused by climate change, which would be called "Green Helmets", but that idea was not accepted. President Stephen says the impact of climate change on islands such as Nauru was highlighted when he wrote an op-ed piece in the influential New York Times newspaper just as the Security Council was meeting.
