UN chief: COP26 outcome is not enough

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called on countries to make greater efforts to fight climate change.

Guterres spoke in a video message on Saturday after an agreement was reached at the COP26 UN climate conference in Scotland.

The UN chief said the outcomes of the conference are "welcome steps, but they are not enough."

Calling the pact a "compromise," he said it reflects "the interests, the conditions, the contradictions and the state of political will in the world today."

He said he reaffirmed his conviction that fossil fuel subsidies must be ended.

Guterres said some goals were not achieved at the conference, and called on people to go into emergency mode.

He said, "We are in the fight of our lives. Never give up. Never retreat. Keep pushing forward."
