President Pere Aragonès met with Scottish first minister Nicola Sturgeon in Glasgow on Sunday, the first meeting between the two since Aragonès was elected head of the Catalan government.

The two leaders held a half-hour meeting, the main objective of which was to "share experiences" between Catalonia and Scotland on climate change.

Aragonès travelled to Glasgow to participate in the Under2 Coalition General Assembly, a congress held for subnational governments under the framework of COP26, the United Nations climate change conference.

The president also met with the governor of Washington state, Jay Inslee, and was greeted on arrival to the summit by the Catalan government's representative in the UK and Ireland, Sergi Marcen.

COP26

Aragonès's diary for COP26 includes addressing the Under2 Coalition General Assembly on Sunday to talk about energy and infrastructure and meetings on Monday with the President of Corsica, Gilles Simeoni, and the President of the Assembly of European Regions, Magnus Berntsson.
