South Korean President Moon Jae-in chaired a virtual conference of global leaders on ways for inclusive green recovery from the COVID-19 crisis and the longer-term goal of carbon neutrality, his office said.
Commencing the Leaders' Dialogue forum, streamed live on the second day of the two-day P4G Seoul Summit, Moon proposed that the international community strengthen cooperation with a focus on technology, financial resources and capacity building in order to achieve an inclusive green recovery.
"Carbon neutrality is what makes a sustainable green future" and measures to achieve it should be sustainable, Moon said.
He also emphasized the need for an inclusive approach.
"There are no borders on climate issues," he said. "It is very important for advanced and developing countries to understand each other's different economic and social conditions and work in solidarity."
He reaffirmed Seoul's commitment to bolstering cooperation with such international organizations as the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), all based in South Korea.
