Sharm el-Sheikh: UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres delivered a speech at the COP27 climate summit, which is currently taking place in Egypt’s Sharm el-Sheikh. Leaders of various countries assemble there to discuss climate change and global warming issues that the entire world is facing at the moment.
Although the world is losing the battle against the climate disaster, I remain optimistic because of you. “You have consistently demanded answers from decision-makers,” Antonio Guterres said while reading his written speech during his opening remarks at a session with former US Vice President Al Gore on monitoring carbon emissions.
Then he understood that he was delivering the incorrect speech.
“I guess that I was given the wrong speech.” Antonie Guterres laughed, as did the crowd present.
The UN chief then chuckled and started all over again.
“There was a small confusion, I apologise,” Antonio Guterres said, informing the crowd that he was due to address a group of young people and that he had been reading the speech that was meant for them.
After that, Antonio Guterres presented the correct speech, and the crowd applauded as well.
High-level discussion is taking place regarding increasing finance for developing nations to make their economies more potent and prepare for the impact of global warming, which began this week at the COP27 climate conference.
