(Reuters) – UK Economy Secretary Alok Sharma offered to step down from his ministerial position to take on a full-time role in preparing to chair the United Nations COP26 climate summit, The Times .uk / article / let-me-quit-the-government-to-lead-climate-talks-says-Alok-Sharma-z7hvnqgqd reported on Saturday.

Alok Sharma, who is also president of this year’s climate summit, told Prime Minister Boris Johnson that he would rather give up his position as minister of economics than step down from his role as envoy on climate change, the newspaper reported.
