AMMAN — Environment Minister Muawieh Radaideh participated in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Summit, which opened in New York on Monday during the UN General Assembly high-level week.

The summit concluded with the approval of a political statement to address the increasing number of global crises and conflicts, which have the greatest impact on the most vulnerable countries, according to a ministry statement cited by the Jordan News Agency, Petra, on Tuesday.
