Prime Minister Narendra Modi has reached Glasgow to attend the 26th United Nations Summit on Climate Change. Here he will participate in the COP26 Environment Summit, as well as hold bilateral talks with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Prime Minister Modi wrote on his Twitter wall that I have reached Glasgow. I will be attending COP26, where I look forward to working with other world leaders to address climate change and articulate India's efforts in this regard.
On reaching Glasgow, the Prime Minister first met the people of the Indian community in his hotel Mar Hall. Also, many people of the Indian community living in different parts of Britain have reached Glasgow to meet the Prime Minister. However, after meeting the Indians, the Prime Minister will visit the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) to participate in the World Leaders Summit of COP26. PM Modi will participate in the opening ceremony there.
The Prime Minister was greeted to the tune of 'Scottish bagpipes' upon his arrival at the hotel in Glasgow where a large group of overseas Indian delegates were already present to welcome him, who also raised slogans of "Bharat Mata ki Jai". Let us tell you that PM Modi had earlier given information about leaving for Glasgow by tweeting.
