A high-profile Climate change summit hosted by U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in New York was disrupted when he was called away for an unexpected meeting. Russian Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya tried to prevent Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy from speaking, causing tension in the Security Council. Zelenskyy called for Russia to be suspended from the Security Council and for reforms to the body. At the Climate Summit, leaders discussed the need for climate finance and the goal of mobilizing $100 billion a year for climate action in developing countries. European Union President Ursula von der Leyen called for the goal to be reached before COP28 in December.
