The UAE President of COP28 urged countries to seek "common ground" to resolve disagreements over the future of fossil fuels ahead of a UN climate summit he will host from the end of the month.
The summit, from Nov. 30 to Dec. 12, will seek agreement on phasing out fossil fuels.
But countries are divided between those demanding a deal to phase out the burning of coal, oil and natural gas that produce the greenhouse gases that are the main cause of climate change and nations insisting on preserving a role for fossil fuels.
