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

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 had been expected to arrive on November 7.

President Isaac Herzog will take his place representing Israel.
