Saint Lucia Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre and United States President Joe Biden posed for a selfie as they met this week in Glasgow for the COP26 World Leaders Summit.
Pierre posted the selfie on his official Facebook page.
“President Biden and I first met when I was Deputy Prime Minister, and he was Vice President of the United States of America. That was almost ten years ago,” the Saint Lucia Prime Minister recalled.
“He captured our reunion with a selfie when we met this week in Glasgow, having successfully contested elections to become the leader of our respective Governments,” Pierre said.
“Rest assured that I continue to make representation that puts the people of Saint Lucia first,” the Saint Lucia Prime Minister asserted.
In his address to world leaders at the Glasgow summit, Pierre had also raised the issue of putting people first in addressing the impacts of climate change.
“The young people who will inherit this planet, are watching us. We cannot fail them. Let us not be that generation of leaders who had the last chance to set the world on track but chose not to put people first,” he stated.
