'We can't ignore climate change': Boris Johnson hosts virtual G7

Telegraph, 19 Feb 2021
Boris Johnson has told world leaders they "can't ignore the problems of climate change"

He told the leaders of the US, Japan, Canada, Germany, France and Italy: "I think that this is the right moment for us all to focus on the other great natural challenge about which we've been warned time and time and time again.

"We can't ignore it,the warnings have been even clearer than they were for Covid, and that is the problem of climate change, and that's why we're going to be working very hard to get some great things done at G7 on our plans for the Cop26 summit that we are holding along with our Italian friends in Glasgow in November.

In the lead-up to Friday's virtual G7 meeting, Boris Johnson also pledged to donate the majority of the UK's surplus vaccines to poorer nations.
