President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi heads on Sunday 31/10/2021 to Britain to participate in the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) for the heads of state and government that will be held on the 1st and 2nd of November in Glasgow.
President El-Sisi’s participation in the climate summit fulfils the invitation of British Prime Minister, Mr. Boris Johnson, whose country is the president of the current summit. This is in light of the significant role that Egypt plays both regionally and internationally within the framework of climate change negotiations.
The President will focus during the conference on topics of interest to developing countries, in general, and African countries, in particular, notably with regard to enhancing efforts toward strengthening international climate action. This is in addition to underscoring the importance of the industrial countries’ commitment to their pledges within the framework of the Paris Agreement, as well as stressing Egypt’s willingness to host the coming climate change summit in 2022.
The President’s agenda during his visit to Britain will include holding talks with the British Prime Minister to discuss enhancing bilateral relations that have been witnessing major strides over the past years so as to achieve the common interests of both countries. President El-Sisi and Mr. Johnson will also continue consultations and coordination on a multitude of regional and international issues of mutual interest.
President El-Sisi is also expected to hold a number of meetings on the sidelines of the summit with presidents and heads of state and government to discuss means to further advance bilateral cooperation and exchange views regarding various regional and international issues.
