H.E President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih has attended a reception for world leaders hosted by the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, H.E the Right Honourable Boris Johnson. The reception was held at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom, as a side-event of the United Nations Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP26).

President Solih joined more than 120 heads of government and heads of state for the special VVIP reception.

COP26 is a major event for the Maldives and an opportunity to address the nation's sustainable development plans on the global stage. Earlier tonight, the President delivered the National Statement at the World Leaders Summit at COP26, calling on world leaders to step up their efforts to make more ambitious climate commitments and to uphold obligations.
