Prime Minister Fumio Kishida told his British counterpart Boris Johnson on Wednesday that he is considering whether to attend the leaders’ session of U.N. climate change talks to be held in Glasgow in early November, a senior Foreign Ministry official said.

Kishida is expected to decide whether to travel to the Scottish city to attend the gathering, known as COP26, depending on how Japan’s ruling coalition fares in the general election on Oct. 31, as well as if he would have an opportunity for a face-to-face meeting with U.S. President Joe Biden.
