“As the Philippine archipelago surrounded by waters is very sensitive to climate, we look forward to attending COP29 in Baku, hosted by Azerbaijan,” Henry Bensurto, the non-resident ambassador of the Philippines to Azerbaijan (his residence is in Ankara), told Report.

The ambassador stated that environmental issues and climate change are very important for the Philippines: “Climate changes first of all affect the islands. At the same time, I think that climate changes are of great importance not only for our country but for the whole world. That’s why COP29 is a very good platform.”

The Bensurto believes that thanks to this international event, Baku will focus the attention of the whole world on solving the problems.
