Australian PM Likely to Attend Climate Summit, Officials Say

An official said that Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is likely to attend the United Nations COP26 climate summit in Glasglow after drawing flak for being undecided to commit to the event. 

The official, who is acquainted with Morrison’s plans, said that there was no definite answer, but it is “looking likely now.”

Morrison’s reluctance to attend the summit on October 31 to November 12 prompted criticism from global leaders and had put pressure on his government to actively initiate on decreasing carbon emissions.

Morrison said that there were no definite plans to come because it was another event out of the country, and that he spent most of his time under quarantine.

Meanwhile, even Prince Charles has urged Morrison and other world leaders to take part in the summit as his frustration with the lack of action regarding climate change grows.
