"antonio guterres" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing

"This is very, very urgent for not just for our country for the whole world and the clock is ticking. We have to get everybody to do more. And above all, how we're going to get the hold of the developing world to buy into this. Also, I had French president Emmanuel Macron accuses Australia's leader Scott Morrison of lying over a defense pact. Plus, we get an update on North Macedonia. The day's business headlines and the latest aviation news as well. All ahead right here on the briefing with me, Daniel beach. We begin today's program in the Scottish city of Glasgow, which is hosting the cop 26 summit. World leaders are hoping to thrash out a deal that would lead to a binding climate strategy. But that has so far eluded them. Let's get the latest from Glasgow now with Monica 24s car lot of rubella. A lot of thank you for joining us. Can you set the scene for us today on how things are going? Good afternoon, Daniel, officially, and you and territory. On Friday at the Scottish event campus, which is the host venue for cop 26, was handed over from UK authorities to the United Nations. You might be hearing the helicopters above me and also some protesters in the background right by the entrance. Fitting 25,000 attendees into one venue is not an easy task. So even though now it's midday, the opening of the world, the leaders summit begins. There's still thousands of people outside waiting to get in some even waiting to get their registration I've done. Well, some obviously billing this is a big moment for the UK and for the city of Glasgow, specifically. It's been a bit chaotic to get things going, hasn't it? Yeah. And maybe just every time there's a big event like this. We know that things will get a bit bumpy. We yesterday here in the UK, there was disruption to the train service when a fallen tree disrupted the line connecting London to Glasgow. So every train from midday onwards yesterday coming up to Scotland was canceled, which wasn't great on the eve of such a big summit. Also, the accommodation is a real issue in the city. This is a city that has around 15,000 beds in hotels and as I mentioned 25,000 people are attending, which means that 50 delegations that includes leaders and the party traveling with them are actually staying in Edinburgh, which of course is very well connected by Scottish rail to Glasgow. But even some journalists due to all the deadlines for media gravitation, et cetera are also staying in Edinburgh. And curiously enough, two cruise ships, one from Latvia, and another one from Estonia are more to hear in Glasgow's harbor to serve as additional accommodation for the summit. It's all happening. Isn't it Carla? I talk to us about the agenda and how this is opening. Obviously, the summit is taking place over a few weeks. So what are you looking forward to today? What's happening at the venue? So today is the crucial day here to open cop 26, even though the official opening was yesterday on Sunday. But today is when we'll hear from UK prime minister Boris Johnson from United Nations secretary general Antonio Guterres. And from an array of other world lead, there's now Daniel he might remember that famously, the Chinese premier Xi Jinping said he would not be attending despite sending his climate envoy. But we now have learned that he will be joining via video link. And reading a written statement. So that's something that everyone is looking out for. Of course, China should be a central part of these talks and it's presence not being here is, of course, what everyone is talking about. Today, the leaders summit takes takes hold. Everyone wants to see what each country has as their priorities. I think a lot of the smaller nations and nations that have been more affected by the reality of climate change probably in much more than us here in the west and in Europe are eager to see if people actually are taking serious this commitment in order to avoid their countries to become even more disrupted by climate change. Well, it's a big moment as we say for the UK but also for leader Boris Johnson. We heard the clip off the top there on him. Wanting to pressure leaders that are arriving today and arriving from Rome where they were meeting as part of the G 20 where a relaxed deal we can say was agreed, not much substance in it. What's the pressure on leaders to hammer something out here over the next couple of days over the next two weeks, in fact? Well, the pressure is evidently on, but considering that the line from the summit is to keep the commitment from Paris, it doesn't say much, does it? Paris agreement was in 2015. And if from 2015 until now in 2021, countries haven't been able to stick the commitment made that. Trust is really what's at the core here of negotiations these two weeks. Will they be able to commit to that now? Now, Boris Johnson has a difficult task in the UK as a host, has a difficult task because just last week in the introduction of the budget. It's made changes to the air passenger duty. There's the whole controversy going on with the coal mine in cumbria. So it doesn't look good as the summit, the biggest climate conference of this generation begins to have that on the back foot as a host nation. Carlotta, thank you for this. That is Monaco's car lot of rubella on the ground for us in Glasgow. Now here is Monica's Emma searle with the day's other news headlines. Thanks, Daniel. The U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken says he is alarmed by reports that rebellious forces have taken control of two Ethiopian towns. Blinken added that fighting prolongs the dire humanitarian crisis in northern Ethiopia, and that a ceasefire should be implemented immediately.

"Pandemic is a test of international cooperation. One, the U.

The secretary general is trying to use this virtual General Assembly to get countries to work together to fight the pandemic and many other global challenges. But one Security Council debate showed just how hard this will be. You know shame on each of you. I am astonish, and I'm disgusted. That's the U. S ambassador to the U. N. Kelly Craft accusing her colleagues, though not naming, which ones of playing politics with covert 19 members of the council who took this opportunity to focus on political grudges rather than the critical issue at hand. My goodness Craft defended the Trump administration's decision to pull out of the World Health Organization and said China should be held to account for quote, unleashing this plague onto the world. China's Ambassador John Joon, says the US is just trying to blame others for its own failings. The United the States has been spread in political virus on this information. And for 18 confrontation on division. Up to that point, it had been a rather dry Security Council meeting about global governance in the wake of covert 19. There was a lot of talk about multilateralism and a few veiled swipes at the Trump Administration's America first approach, Kraft said. The U. S has given you n agencies $900 million to counter the pandemic and compared that to others on the Security Council. NYU's year 4.6 million South Africa 8.4 million Indonesia five million. The US does give more to the U. N than other, says Richard Gallon of the International Crisis Group. But this is not just about money. Foreign diplomats had grown accustomed to trump attacking. Yuen arrangements like the Paris climate deal on mechanisms like the Human Rights Council. But they were genuinely shocked the Washington would walk away from the W. H O during a global pandemic. Speaking via Skype, he said diplomats are worried about what he calls a nasty fight between the US and China as Beijing tries to increase its influence in the world body on a day to day basis, Chinese diplomats in New York are often Very assertive, increasingly hard line and sometimes bullying colleagues from smaller countries. The reality is that for most members of the U.

She's raising the alarms about the forgotten conflicts from Yemen to this, the hell region of Africa has a triple threat of climate conflict and called it mansions.
