The debate was organized by Britain, which holds the rotating presidency of the Security Council. The letters objected that global warming is not an issue of international peace and security. The letters accused the Security Council of "ever-increasing encroachment" on the role and responsibility of other UN entities. They said climate change and energy are issues for the General Assembly, where all 192 UN members are represented, and the Economic and Social Council, not the Security Council. Pakistan's deputy ambassador, Farukh Amil, whose country heads the Group for 77, told the council that its debate not only "infringes" on the authority of other UN organs, but also "compromises the rights of the general membership of the United Nations."</p></div></body>
