No terrorist incidents during COP 24 in Poland

There were no terrorist incidents reported during the COP 24 climate summit in Poland's southern city of Katowice, PAP was told on Thursday by the spokesperson of the minister coordinator of special services.

The COP24 summit on climate change took place in Katowice on December 3-15, 2018. The Conference of the Parties (COP) summit is the highest body of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC). The Katowice meeting was attended by around 30,000 delegates from all over the world, including government leaders and ministers responsible for environmental policy. Earlier, Poland organised two COPs, in 2008 in Poznań (western Poland) and 2013 in Warsaw.

Stanisław Żaryn said that Poland's Internal Security Agency (ABW) started its first COP 24-related operations in 2017, and that from September 2018 it closely cooperated with other Polish and foreign partner services as well as with COP 24 organisers.

As part of its operations, ABW handed over to border guards a list of 417 foreigners accused in the past of participation in radical projects. Eleven foreigners were not allowed to enter Poland, Żaryn declared.
