New Delhi: British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Monday unexpectedly left the COP27 summit after being hurried by his staff. The incident, which was caught on camera, confused a lot of people. Sunak was allegedly hurried out of the room at the COP27 unveiling of the forest partnership, according to Leo Hickman, the director of the website Carbon Brief.
Hickman claimed that an assistant had entered the space and was interacting with Sunak regarding whether or not he ought to be leaving. He first refused to leave the stage, but a different assistant eventually convinced him to do so.
The Prime Minister decided at the last minute to meet with the officials from South Africa and Germany, according to Harry Cole, the political editor of The Sun, who posted the video on his Twitter account. Cole added that the staff at 10 Downing Street argued that the incident wasn’t very significant. However, there was no official response to the film from the British government.
The Egyptian resort town of El-Shaba hosted the COP27 conference’s opening ceremony. Government representatives and specialists from all over the world have gathered to discuss climate change.
Sunak mentioned in his speech that the war had forced countries to act on climate change. He asserted that there was still time to create a world that was more sustainable.
He pleaded on the nations to uphold their commitments made in the Glasgow Impact Pact and allocate both public and private funds to environmental causes. In order to explore new initiatives relating to green technology and energy security, the UK Prime Minister is also anticipated to meet with other top officials from around the world many times.
