US climate envoy Kerry visits China and Japan this week

US climate envoy John Kerry will travel to China and Japan this week “to talk with international counterparts about efforts to tackle the climate crisis,” the State Department said in a statement Monday.

The former Secretary of State has led US efforts to convince the global community of the threat of climate change and push for efforts to curb carbon emissions to accelerate.

During his trip to China, Kerry will try to build on commitments he made during his visit in April, when the two countries, the world’s two biggest carbon polluters, agreed to work together to urgently curb climate change.

In Japan, Kerry will meet “counterparts to discuss efforts to drive collective climate action” ahead of the UN COP26 climate conference, to be held in Scotland later this year, the statement said.
