President Bola Tinubu today met King Charles III of England in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with both leaders conversing about strengthening the partnership between Nigeria and the United Kingdom.

Both of them are in the country to participate in the United Nations Climate Conference known as COP28 taking place in the Emirati city.

Tinubu posted a picture of them alongside a message on his X account, describing the king as a passionate climate advocate and their meeting, productive.

The president expressed optimism that the joint efforts of both countries would ensure setting an equitable global standard for environmental stewardship at COP28.

Meanwhile, the Loss and Damage Fund has just been operationalised at COP28, which began today in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The Loss and Damage Fund is a fund to provide a form of reparation such that rich nations are to pay a damage cost to developing nations, which are more vulnerable and are often more affected by climate change.

Confirming the development, Head of Global Political Strategy, Climate Action Network International, Harjeet Singh described it as a historic moment but noted that there were existing concerns that were yet to be addressed.
