Johnson asks world leaders at Cop26: ‘will you help us or will you stand in the way?’

Boris Johnson has urged world leaders not to “stand in the way” of attempts to strike a climate deal at Cop26.

“I say to my fellow leaders, you cannot now sit on your hands as the world asks you to act,” the prime minister said, leading a news conference in Glasgow.

“My question to my fellow world leaders this afternoon, as we enter the last hours of Cop, is: ‘Will you help us do that, will you help us grasp that opportunity? Or will you stand in the way?”
