“As well as with COP26 we have G7. Through all these international gatherings we have what I describe as the golden thread of climate action.”

Several days earlier, the Prime Minister initiated the UK’s G7 Presidency that will have the country host the summit in Cornwall during June.

The G7 is believed to be the only forum that gathers the world’s leading democratic nations together to address common challenges.
