Biden asked Chen and Putin not to attend the climate summit
China and Russia were criticized by US President Joe Biden at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, where the two eastern powers were represented by their delegations, but neither Chinese President Xi Qingping nor Russian President Vladimir Putin traveled to the conference. “
In response to a question Tuesday evening, Biden said that the climate crisis is currently the most important global issue for the international community, and that every major emitter has a responsibility to do so. The US president said it frankly, China simply ignored it, and the same goes for Russia.
Biden particularly cheered China, as China is the world’s largest emitter of carbon dioxide, followed by the United States, the European Union, India, and then Russia.
“China wants to be the world’s leading superpower, doesn’t it appear at the top? Come on,” said the US president, who said Xi made a mistake in the move.
The Glasgow Summit will last for two weeks on 14 November and will be attended by 120 prominent politicians.
It is said that Hszi has not left China since the beginning of 2020, that is, the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis. Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, did not explain the reason for the Russian president’s absence.
