Barack Obama and Xi Jinping To Attend Major Ban Ki-Moon Climate Summit

"Barack Obama and Xi Jinping are set to attend a climate summit hosted by UN secretary-general Ban Ki-Moon in September.

The US and Chinese heads of state are on a “very long list of confirmations” to attend the one-day conference in New York, according to UN climate chief Christiana Figueres.

The summit is an opportunity for world leaders to showcase the action their countries are taking on climate change and to make fresh pledges."
