President Moon in Glasgow for UN Climate Change Conference Updated: 2021-11-01 17:15:30 KST

South Korean President Moon Jae-in is now in the Scottish city of Glasgow the second stop on his Europe tour for the UN Climate Change Conference, also called COP26.
Delegates from some 200 countries will be sharing their efforts to curb carbon emissions and deal with global warming.
We have our Blue House correspondent Kim Min-ji who is travelling with the President joining us on the line.
Min-ji, President Moon will be using the global summit to announce South Korea's new ambitious target to cut carbon emissions, right?


Yes, for the next two days, President Moon will be in Glasgow for the UN climate Change Conference with his first session scheduled for the afternoon.
Moon will be giving a keynote speech in which he will announce South Korea's new target for reducing carbon emissions, a target known as the National Determined Contribution.
This is the first time South Korea's target has been unveiled at a global event.
Recently, South Korea finalized its goal of reducing emissions by 40 percent from 2018 levels.
That's up from the previous target of 26.3 percent.
South Korea will also join the global methane pledge which will officially launch at COP26.
The initiative seeks to cut global methane emissions by at least 30 percent by 2030 from 2020 levels.
Moon is also expected to introduce South Korea's policies to achieve its carbon neutrality goal as well as to help developing nations go carbon neutral.

Moon will also be joined by delegates from around 200 nations, who will announce how they also plan to cut down on greenhouse gases and accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement, namely to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
Attention will be on whether the leaders can make COP26 a turning point to bring the climate crisis under control.
On the sidelines, something we'll be looking out for is whether Moon will be have an encounter with U.S. President Joe Biden again following the G20 Summit or with Japan's new prime minister Fumio Kishida who will also attend.
Back to you, Connyoung.
