Previously, US Special Climate Envoy John Kerry praised King Mohammed VI’s commitment to the fight against climate change.
“I personally felt the commitment of HM King Mohammed VI (in the fight against climate change) when Morocco hosted the COP22” in Marrakech in 2016, said Mr. Kerry in a tweet broadcast on the sidelines of the “Climate and Development” Ministerial Meeting, organized this Wednesday in virtual mode at the initiative of the United Kingdom.
For the American envoy, Morocco is an important partner in the international fight against climate change.
“We look forward to deepening our partnership” on the way to Glasgow, which will host the 26th United Nations Conference of the Parties on Climate Change (COP26) from November 1-12, 2021, said Kerry.
