ABU DHABI, December 6. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin thanked UAE counterpart Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan for his country's efforts in the environmental sphere.
"Today, one of the most important international ecological forums (the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change - COP28 - TASS) is being held in the UAE. The initial results of the Paris agreements are being summarized," Putin said during talks with Al Nahyan.
"You are holding this event just as we expected - at the highest level. Undoubtedly, many people around the world, who are far removed from the environmental movement, are grateful for your efforts here," Putin addressed the UAE leader.
The Russian president emphasized that "the Russian delegation is very involved in the conference’s work." "We wish you success, which I have no doubt you will have," the Russian leader emphasized.
The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change is being held from November 30 to December 12 in Dubai. Over 140 state leaders and more than 70,000 delegates from various countries are attending the event. Representatives from big business, the research community, experts and journalists are also present at the event.
