American President Joseph Biden admitted that he was happy to listen to Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s speech on climate issues. He said this at a session after the summit.
Putin was one of the 40 state leaders who participated in the large-scale event. He said that Russia is on track to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and added that Moscow is interested in enhancing international cooperation on environmental issues. The Russian leader invited all countries to join forces on the issue.
Biden later said he was heartened by Putin’s appeal to the international community. He particularly noted the Russian president’s words about countries working together to reduce carbon dioxide.
