An open invitation’ to climate summit
Chief climate negotiator Mohamed Nasr made clear there was “an open invitation” to the British monarch. “We still hope he can come to Sharm El-Sheikh,” he said, adding that Charles was “a strong advocate for climate action and a role model.”
Nasr’s comments came after the resignation of Liz Truss, who lasted 44 days as prime minister after crashing the UK economy with a disastrous low tax, fossil-fuel driven budget.
She had objected to the king’s attendance at COP27 on the basis it was a “political” event. As new king, Charles is subject to rules obliging him to be politically neutral.
