Prime Minister Yair Lapid is canceling his planned participation in the upcoming UN climate change conference, known as COP27, in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, APA reports citing the Times of Israel.

Hebrew media reports say the decision is made following his apparent election loss.

The 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference will be held from November 6 to18, and Lapid is expected to arrive on November 7.

President Isaac Herzog will take his place representing Israel.
