UNSC to meet on global warming impact on world peace

The United Nations Security Council will be having a meeting with it’s members todebate climate change’s implications for world peace on Tuesday. It would be a virtual meet and the meet is called by British PM Boris Johnson.

Boris Johnson, whose country now holds the Security Council’s rotating presidency, will address the forum, as will US climate czar John Kerry, French President Emmanuel Macron, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and the prime ministers of Ireland, Vietnam, Norway and other countries.

The meeting will serve as a test for US-China relations, one UN ambassador said on condition of anonymity, alluding to one of the few issues where the two big powers might agree.

It is to be noted that the meeting is going to be conducted just days after the United States under President Joe Biden formally rejoined the Paris climate change accord.
