Kenya does not want to interfere in appointment of COP Presidency

Kenya’s climate change envoy, Ali Mohammed, is reportedly supportive of the UAE’s choice of COP28 President, Sultan Al Jaber. The country’s position is that it does not wish to interfere in a sovereign decision to appoint him to lead this year’s climate negotiations in Dubai. He stated “as Kenya we are not interested in individuals at the helm. We are aware that UAE is the largest investor in renewable energy and singling out UAE or Dr Al Jaber does not hold any water as we will not challenge a sovereign decision to have him as COP28 President because UAE is within their right to choose whoever they wish.”
