Washington commends Seoul's climate efforts

United States State Department spokesman Ned Price commended South Korea for pledging to join the global effort to reduce carbon emissions by ending its financial support of coal-fired projects.

"The Republic of Korea announced an end to external coal finance and countries are moving in the right direction, but, of course, we know there is more to do," said Price.

The spokesman's remarks come after President Joe Biden hosted a virtual Climate Leaders Summit to address the global climate crisis.
