Leaked memos obtained by the BBC revealed that the United Arab Emirates planned to use its role as host of the United Nations climate summit to pursue fossil fuel deals with at least 15 other nations attending the conference.
The documents showed that the UAE’s COP28 team, led by COP28 President Sultan Ahmed Al-Jaber, arranged meetings to discuss potential partnerships with Emirati state-owned energy businesses.
