“We arrived at the Sharm El-Sheikh International Convention Center to fulfill a broad work agenda... We will hold a long day of work to expose the firm position of Venezuela against the destructive and polluting attacks of the capitalist system on our planet Earth,” he tweeted.

"We are committed to bringing to COP27 the clamor of the peoples who suffer the hard blows generated by a destructive system that threatens the existence of humanity. We expect concrete results in this world meeting."

Maduro was received in the lobby of the Convention Center by the United Nations Secretary Antonio Guterres and the Egyptian President Abdelfatah El-Sisi. Later, he met with dozens of heads of state for the COP27 photo.

The Bolivarian leader is scheduled to participate on Monday in a panel on food security, one of the six high-level round tables that will take place in parallel to the meeting of rulers attending COP27, which began on Sunday and will conclude on Nov. 18. On Tuesday, Maduro is expected to to speak on climate change in the high-level segment.

COP27 has brought together over 30,000 people representing governments, companies, non-governmental organizations, and social groups.

Dozens of presidents have already arrived at this international meeting. Among those attending COP27, however, will not be Russia's President Vladimir Putin, China's President Xi Jinping, and India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
