Leaders Discuss Global Warming at Glasgow Climate Summit
World leaders continue their talks on climate change at the climate summit in Glasgow. On the second and final day of the heads of government meeting, several prime ministers and presidents will deliver speeches.
On Monday, outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte and US President Joe Biden already did that.
Among the leaders to speak on Tuesday are Surinamese President Chan Santokhi, Argentine President Alberto Fernández and Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen. The heads of government of Nigeria, Angola, Colombia and Costa Rica will also make an appearance.
If the political leaders have left after Tuesday, the conference will continue. Thousands of diplomats, representatives of non-profit organizations, journalists and other stakeholders are at work every day at the so-called COP26. Numerous ministers and other politicians are also coming to Glasgow.
On behalf of the Dutch cabinet, Minister Tom de Bruijn (Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation) and State Secretaries Dilan Yeşilgöz-Zegerius (Climate and Energy) and Steven van Weyenberg (Infrastructure and Hydrogen) are expected in the second week. The summit will last until next Friday.
