Commonwealth ends summit with call for action on climate change, trade

26/6/2022 6:21
        The 56 members of the Commonwealth made broad commitments to addressing climate change and boosting trade on Saturday as they concluded a summit aimed at shoring up the relevance of a group that evolved from the British empire.
        
        The club, which covers some 2.5 billion people or about one-third of the world's population, presents itself as a network for cooperation with shared goals, but critics say it needs to take concrete actions and be more than a talking shop.
        
        The week-long summit in Rwanda's capital Kigali included comments from Britain's Prince Charles on Friday expressing sorrow for his country's role in the trans-Atlantic slave trade, the first time the Commonwealth has publicly addressed the subject.
        
        Some members urged the organisation to go further by discussing reparations to countries affected by the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
