COP26 Talks Continue With Deal Still Elusive

GLASGOW—Negotiators seeking to reach a global deal to slow climate change said they would continue talks at a United Nations summit here through the night and into Saturday, as they wrestled with differences over the wording of what they hope will be a meaningful agreement.

Negotiators have made progress narrowing some gaps, according to people familiar with the talks and based on draft texts circulated on Thursday and Friday. But the U.K., which holds the presidency of the U.N. talks, said delegates needed more time for consultations and editing drafts. The U.K. said it hoped to have a fresh text of a potential final agreement on Saturday morning and to get a final deal by the afternoon.
