We should not blame each other for global warming, Deputy Head of the Department of Foreign Policy Affairs of the Presidential Administration of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Head of the COP29 Organising Committee Secretariat Habib Mikayilli said in his speech at the 29th High-Level Meeting themed “Pathway to COP29: Sustainable and Resilient Future” held in Baku, APA reports.

He stated that Azerbaijan has entered the active phase of the COP29 presidency: "This is a very decisive and historic moment. The achievements we have made over the past six months involve our COP team traveling to world capitals, engaging in consultations with countries that participate in various negotiation groups, listening to their ideas, understanding their priorities, and positioning ourselves and it was quite successful."

He stated that there are still unresolved issues among countries, but he is optimistic that agreements will be reached: "I believe that the key players will come to an agreement, just as they did during the Paris Climate Agreement. Support for small and developing countries will be one of our priorities. One of Azerbaijan's priorities is not to blame each other for global warming, while also not accepting any attacks against oil and gas-producing countries. We believe that hope is the basis of cooperation."

According to Habib Mikayilli, developing countries and island countries suffer more from the consequences of climate change.

He mentioned that besides countries' plans related to climate change, it is also important to have mechanisms and opportunities to implement those plans.
