Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - World leaders used New Year messages to stress the preservation of the environment while others dealt with internal political issues and foreign policy.
Finnish Prime minister Sanna Marin, the world’s youngest at 34, said her goal is to make Finland "a financially responsible, socially equitable and environmentally sustainable society".
"We are entering a decade during which we must find solutions for combating climate change," Ms Martin said,
"This calls for decisions that reduce emissions… we will rely on scientific data, while taking account of the social and regional impacts of the solutions proposed."
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she is ardently fighting climate change, describing global warming as real and “threatening”.
Mrs Merkel said: “We have to do everything humanly possible to overcome this human challenge.”
“At 65, I am at an age at which I personally will no longer experience all the consequences of climate change that will occur if politicians do not act,” she added.
In Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said one of his proudest achievement in 2019 was the unveiling of the country’s first electric car, set to go into production in 2022.
Mr Erdogan, however, touted the car as a sign of Turkish industrial might, more than a commitment to the envioirnemnt, saying the projejct “shows that our country is moving forward in the right direction.”
“In the last days of 2019, we all shared the joy of a project which I believe made proud every one of our 82 million citizens,” Mr Erdogan said.
Other New Year messages were imbued by more political themes.
The king of Malysia, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al Sultan Abdullah Riayatuddin Al Mustafa Billah Shah, called on his compatriots to foego racial tensions.
“I would like to remind all Malaysians to maintain unity and harmony we have largely enjoyed over the past 62 years because many issues related to racial and religious sensitivities have been raised lately,” he said.
“Just like our previous heads of state, I really wish to see my beloved country, Malaysia, continue to be united, harmonious and progressive.”
The most important New Year message is set to belong to Korean leader Kim Jong Un. His speech, expected later on Wednesday may detail a “new path” he said the country would take if US does not soften its stance over denuclearization.
In Britain, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he would bring his divided nation back together when the UK leaves the European Union, telling Britons they were set for a "fantastic year and a remarkable decade".
Fresh from winning a large parliamentary majority in an election just over two weeks ago, Mr Johnson said in a New Year's message that his first job was to ensure Brexit was delivered, more than three years after Britain voted to leave the EU, and then to heal the wounds the vote had opened.
"As we say goodbye to 2019, we can also turn the page on the division, rancour and uncertainty which has dominated public life and held us back for far too long," he said.
"Now we have a new parliament, elected by the people to deliver the people’s priorities, which will finally respect the referendum and deliver Brexit. So we’ll get Brexit done before the end of this month," he added.
