During the meeting, issues such as partnership with the European Union and cooperation with the EU within the COP29 were discussed.

The EU side was informed about the negotiation process and the activity agenda, the results of the Climate Conference in Bonn were discussed and the importance of the EU’s constructive position as well as all parties in the successful implementation of the negotiations was emphasised.

During the current year, discussions were held on the organisation of events related to COP29 for the effective implementation of COP goals.

As the June 2024 UN Climate Meetings concluded, the COP29 Presidency has highlighted the importance of finance at this year’s negotiations, as well as the transparency and trust needed to achieve the climate goals, COP29 official X account said.

The COP29 Presidency welcomed the progress made by all parties during the intersessional June UN Climate Meetings held in Bonn, Germany.

“We got off to a positive start with the swift adoption of the agenda, there was clear momentum and will to advance work on Article 6, and we made good progress with an updated input paper for the New Collective Quantified Goal on climate finance,” COP29 official X account said adding:

“But we now need a step change in the pace of our work. We heard strong calls that at COP29 we need to collectively make progress across all pillars of the Paris Agreement with climate finance as a centerpiece.

“To that end, Azerbaijan is intensifying its efforts, and we are committed to the integration of political engagement in support of the ongoing substantive discussions.”
