Prime Minister Fumio Kishida is set to pledge that Japan will play a leading role in putting Asia on a path to zero carbon emissions as he attends a U.N. climate summit in Britain on Tuesday, while seeking to network with countries sharing concerns over China’s assertiveness on the sidelines of the international conference.

The visit to Glasgow, Scotland, for the meeting called COP26 marks Kishida’s first overseas trip since becoming prime minister on Oct. 4. But he will be staying there for less than 12 hours as his trip comes on the heels of his ruling party’s election win.
