He added, “Egypt will take into account the priorities and positions of all parties, in order to ensure that the summit produces positive results in the interest of supporting international climate action with all its components, especially with regard to reducing emissions and adapting to the negative effects of climate change, and mobilizing climate finance for developing countries.”

The US envoy also lauded President El-Sisi’s seriousness in addressing international climate action and a green transition, something that is highly regarded by the international community.

Kerry stressed the relevance of developing countries to take climate action. Both the countries will work together and the USA will help Egypt to transform into an energy center with the help of solar and wind energy.

“Egypt has taken effective steps to create a conducive climate for investments in these areas, whether by issuing and amending the required laws and legislation or by providing innovative financing mechanisms for green projects such as the green bonds that Egypt recently introduced,” he said.

The US is funding Egypt to transition and use solar energy as the country is highly dependent on fossil fuels.
