UK PM Rishi Sunak to attend climate summit—COP27

Rishi Sunak, the incoming prime minister of Britain, indicated on Wednesday that he will be attending COP27 in Egypt the following week, despite his office’s earlier assertions to the contrary.

“Without addressing climate change, long-term prosperity is impossible. Without investing in renewable energy, there is no energy security “Sunak tweeted something. In reference to Glasgow, the British city that will host the final iteration of the conference in 2021, he said that he was attending the summit to “deliver on Glasgow’s legacy of forging a secure and sustainable future.”

Sunak’s office said last week that he would not be attending the UN Climate Change Conference because he was concentrating on “urgent home commitments,” which drew both criticism and support for the choice.

With a proposal expected on November 17, Sunak, who last week became Britain’s third prime minister in two months, has been collaborating with finance minister Jeremy Hunt on a package of tax increases and spending reductions to fix the nation’s public finances.

Sunak’s decision to boycott COP27 was referred to as a “major failure of leadership” by the opposition Labour party. Britain is in charge of the presidency till the commencement of the following summit because it hosted COP26 last year.

Alok Sharma, the former cabinet member of Britain who now serves as the COP26 president, warned the newspaper over the weekend that Sunak’s absence from the conference could damage the country’s standing as a global authority on environmental matters.
