Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “U.K.’s Johnson Calls COP26 Climate Deal ‘Fantastic Achievement'” – below is their description.

The agreement reached Saturday at global climate talks in Glasgow will be pivotal in the fight to stop global warming, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said.

The conference hosted by the U.K. produced a “game-changing agreement that the world needed to see,” Johnson said at a press conference in London on Sunday.

Negotiators from almost 200 countries clinched a deal that broke new ground in the fight against climate change, but punted the hardest decisions into the future.​​

While the U.K. leader said he was “immensely proud” of what had been achieved, he acknowledged that his joy was “tinged with disappointment” over successful efforts by some of the world’s largest emitters of greenhouse gases to water down the language in the agreement.

“We can lobby, we can cajole, we can encourage, but we cannot force sovereign nations to do what they do not wish to do,” Johnson said.
