Rishi Sunak U-turns on decision not to attend COP27 climate summit

UK Premier Rishi Sunak is to attend the COP27 climate summit in Egypt next week after No 10 previously said he was too focused on the domestic economy to attend and banned King Charles from going.

Sunak announced the U-turn on Twitter, making no reference to his previous reluctance, saying: “There is no long-term prosperity without action on climate change. There is no energy security without investing in renewables. That is why I will attend Cop27 next week: to deliver on Glasgow’s legacy of building a secure and sustainable future.”

The move may open the door for King Charles to attend as well, just five days after No 10 had said it was not the “right occasion” for him to do so.
