He made the intervention at the special session on climate change at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) 2009, at a special opportunity granted to the President by Chairman Patrick Manning, Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago.

President Nasheed thanked Prime Minister Gordon Brown of Britain, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd of Australia and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of India for their support and assistance to the Maldives to realise its plan to become carbon neutral.

President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, Prime Minister Lars Rasmussen of Denmark and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also spoke at the session.
