Israeli and Palestinian Presidents to Address COP28 Climate Talks

President Isaac Herzog of Israel and his Palestinian counterpart, Mahmud Abbas, are set to deliver speeches at the COP28 UN climate talks in Dubai this week. The official announcement came on Tuesday, revealing their scheduled appearances on Friday, where each leader is allocated a maximum of three minutes to address the gathering.

Unprecedented Meeting

The anticipated speeches raise anticipation as Abbas, representing the Fatah party in the occupied West Bank, is expected to be present during Herzog's COP28 address. Notably, the encounters between the two leaders have been infrequent, making this occasion noteworthy, especially in the middle of the ongoing geopolitical tensions.

Global Participation

The high-profile event is set to witness over 140 heads of state and government addressing the COP28 conference. Scheduled for Thursday and Friday, these speeches mark the commencement of nearly two weeks of intensive discussions aimed at combatting the escalating climate crisis. A detailed list released by the UN on Tuesday outlined the extensive participation of global leaders during the event.
