The new British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has said that the world must “deliver on the legacy” of last year’s COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow.
The Prime Minister
said this in a tweet at the start of a busy day at the latest round of UN talks in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.
Today I will join leaders from across the world at COP27.
For our children and grandchildren, we must deliver on the legacy of Glasgow and protect the future of the planet.
Sunak also met Ursula von der Leyen, EU Commission President, for talks at the climate summit.
The one-on-one meeting comes amid ongoing tensions with the bloc, over the implementation of the Northern Ireland Protocol.
They, as well as talked about tackling climate change, the Ukraine war and energy crisis are also likely to feature in the two leaders’ talks.
They both smiled and thanked the media at the start of the meeting.
This happens to be the new prime minister’s first outing on the international stage since entering No 10, a fortnight ago.
