Short-term cancellation – Erdogan does not travel to climate summit

Dozens of heads of state and governments at UN climate summit

The United Nations Climate Conference has begun, but with a hostage. The G-20 economic powers have so far failed to send a strong signal to Glasgow for more climate protection. Will the speeches of heads of state and government gain new momentum?

Recep Tayyip Erdogan will not attend the UN climate summit. The President of Turkey has now announced this. It was said that the security measures were not enough for him.

DTurkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan canceled his participation in the World Climate Conference (COP26) at short notice. As a justification, Erdogan referred to concerns about security at the summit in Glasgow, Scotland, on Monday. Erdogan met US President Joe Biden on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Rome on Sunday and was in fact expected to visit Glasgow on Monday.

But instead he went back to Turkey. Erdogan told reporters on his official plane that the organizers of the UN climate summit had not responded to his delegation’s demands regarding security measures. “It was not only about our own security, but also about our country’s prestige,” the president said, according to the official Turkish news agency Anadolu.

According to a report in the online portal “Middle East Eye”, the controversy revolved around the size of Erdogan’s delegation. That’s why the organizers called for limiting the Turkish travel delegation.

COP26 in Glasgow

The two-week COP26 began on Sunday. More than 120 heads of state and government are expected to arrive in Glasgow on Monday, including US President Joe Biden and Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU). The heads of the two major greenhouse gas emitters were missing, however, along with China’s President Xi Jinping and Russia’s head of state Vladimir Putin.

COP26 runs until 12 November. 197 nations will negotiate for further implementation of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. The agreement seeks to limit global warming to below two degrees, ideally 1.5 degrees, compared to the pre-industrial era. However, experts and the United Nations have warned that the Earth is currently heading towards a warming of 2.7 degrees this century.
