The president Sebastián Piñera stressed that the date previously agreed will be respected.
From La Moneda Palace, President Sebastián Piñera announced Thursday that COP25, an event that was to be held in Chile during the first half of December, will finally be held in Spain on the agreed date.
“Our commitment to the environment remains intact and unalterable. Yesterday I spoke with the president of Spain, Pedro Sánchez, who offered to perform the COP25 on the same days it was scheduled for Chile,” according to the president.
Within this context, Piñera reiterated that the event was suspended in the country for “clear reasons.”
“Our priority is to meet the needs of Chileans and also safeguard public order,” he added.
Finally, the president commented that the organizers of COP25 are already aware of the change of venue and withdrew from the press point without answering questions or issuing more statements.
