Maleeha Lodhi invites Leonardo DiCaprio to Pakistan


Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi has invited Oscar winning Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio to Pakistan.

“Met and invited Leonardo di Caprio UN messenger of peace to Pakistan” Lodhi posted a photo-tweet on her twitter account.

The Oscar award winner addressed the United Nations General Assembly session on global warming as a messenger of peace.

In his address, DiCaprio compared global warming to slavery. He said that former United States President Abraham Lincoln spoke before the US Congress to confront the defining issue of his time: slavery. He added that the ex-American president’s words still ring today when applied to the defining crisis of our time: climate change.

He added, “Our planet cannot be saved unless we leave fossil fuels in the ground where they belong.”

Pakistan along with 174 other countries signed the Paris Agreement on climate change in the United Nations General Assembly. The deal sets a world action plan to bring down climate change to two percent by 2020.
