PM Modi Reaches UK for COP26 Summit

Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to Glasgow for the COP26 climate summit, and bilateral talks with British PM Boris Johnson on the United Nations (UN) meet. “Landed in Glasgow. I Will be joining the COP26 Summit, where I look forward to working with other world leaders on mitigating climate change and articulating India’s efforts in this regard,” Modi said on Twitter.


Modi flew to Glasgow from the G-20 Summit in Italy to start his European tour with meeting with community leaders and Indologists based in Scotland on Monday morning. He will then go for the opening ceremony of the World Leader’s Summit (WLS) at the 26th Conference of Parties (COP26) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in Glasgow.


PM Modi’s bilateral talks with PM Johnson will take place after the opening ceremony, including cultural performances and a speech by the UK PM. The Modi-Johnson meeting will be followed by a leader-level COP26 event called Action and Solidarity: The Critical Decade. Modi will deliver a national statement on the country’s climate action to the delegates.


India is among the top countries in the world to install renewable energy, wind and solar energy. The focus will be on the country’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) goals for the post-2020 period under the Paris Agreement. This has a decrease in the intensity of its GDP by 33 to 35 per cent by the year 2030, and also scoring 40 per cent combined electric power installed from non-fossil fuel-based energy resources.
