The "vast majority" of nations attending crunch climate talks say host country Egypt's proposed package of resolutions is "balanced", COP27 president Sameh Shoukry said Saturday after the European Union slammed the text, according to AFP.

"The vast majority of the parties indicated to me they considered the text as balanced and that they constitute a potential breakthrough that can lead to consensus," Shoukry, who is also Egypt's foreign minister, told journalists as the talks went into overtime.
