President Joe Biden said that Russia, Saudi Arabia and especially China were mistaken to skip the Group of 20 and UN climate conferences in Europe this week, noting that Beijing missed an opportunity to participate in global leadership.

“They’ve lost an ability to influence people around the world and the people here at COP,” he said at a news conference in Glasgow, Scotland, to conclude the COP-26 climate summit.
